How to Use Ultra-Matte Varnish

Shake well. When using as a topcoat or ground, brush on one or two thin, even, smooth coats, letting dry between coats.

Use as a clear ground. It will readily accept other media such as chalk, pastel, colored pencil, and graphite.

Dilute Media Ultra-matte varnish with water approximately 2:1 and add it to a mister bottle to use as a fixative over pastels and graphite pencils.

Use as a final coat on art journal pages to prevent pages from sticking together.

Use as a final coat on projects you intend to photograph to prevent reflective glare.
