Is matte or gloss varnish better?
It depends on what effect you’re looking to achieve! Matte varnish is suitable when you want to avoid any reflection and create a matte sheen in your artworks. However, gloss varnish will create more reflections, but generally deepens and brightens the colours.
Is matte varnish waterproof?
Matte finish varnish is water-resistant when dry. So, whether you’re looking to store your artwork indoors or outdoors, the varnish will protect against moisture, scratches and ultraviolet lights.
Can you put matte varnish over gloss varnish?
After you have applied your gloss varnish and waited for it to fully dry, you can apply a final coat of varnish using a brush or matte spray varnish in quick even passes. Aim to apply thin coats of varnish.
