Glamour II Veneer (giclee varnish) is an award-winning and proprietary canvas varnish and has been developed to protect, preserve and enhance fine art and photographic prints produced on digital inkjet printers. This non-yellowing, water based canvas varnish is a perfect solution for easy inkjet print finishing. Glamour II will enhance the colour of pigmented and ultrachrome inks on matte media and increase resistance to image fading. It will protect your expensive images against moisture and abrasion.
Glamour II Veneer giclee varnish has been specifically developed as a water-based product to avoid the unpleasant and hazardous fumes given off by solvent based products. Please visit the FAQ to get tips on how to varnish our Chromata Canvas.
Please Note; inkjet canvas may be susceptible to a degree of shrinkage when using a water based laminate due to the natural contraction of the fibres. This is typical of all water based laminates including Glamour II. The extent of shrinkage varies between canvas products and is usually more significant with 100% cotton canvas, which is one of the many reasons Breathing Color and many leading printmakers favour a poly/cotton inkjet canvas such as the Lyve canvas. In most cases the degree of shrinkage can be measured and factored into the print process.
