Breathing Color OPVS-01.0 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to protect and preserve fine art inkjet photo prints, Timeless from Breathing Color is an archival print varnish that also enhances the look of images printed on either canvas or paper. The water-based, non-yellowing varnish requires no mixing or dilution; it can be applied to prints using either a hand roller or HVLP spray gun; and it is extremely fast drying with a clear appearance to maintain images' integrity. Enhanced UV protection contributes to the archivability of the varnish, as well as the use of anti-fungals to benefit use in high humidity environments. Additionally, when used with Breathing Color's Lyve Canvas, no canvas shrinking will occur after application.

This item is 1 gallon of satin finish varnish, which offers a smooth texture with modest reflectivity.

Breathing Color OPVS-01.0 reviews

Timeless Archival Print Varnish (Satin, 1 Gallon) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good protection I've been using BC Timeless varnishes for about a year. I started with Timeless matte and then bought this Timeless satin. While the matte gives a flat coating on matte prints (as you would expect), this satin varnish has a slight shine. The satin makes the blacks stand out more (pop) than the matte, but it does add that distinct shininess and someone looking for a flatter print might not like it. After speaking with Breathing Color, I found out you can either mix matte and satin together to get a reflectance in between (that you can fine tune), or use a light coat of matte over a base coat of satin to bring down some of the shininess. I've tried both roller and spray application of these BC Timeless varnishes and the best results are from the use of an inexpensive HVLP variable sprayer (10% distilled water dilution.) This product is relatively non-toxic, environmentally friendly and easily cleans up with water. It protects the prints (is even UV reducing) and doesn't adversely alter appearance. Beats the heck out of using volatile and toxic canned sprays.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I gotta hand to Timeless Archival. Fantastic product. I would have given it a 5 star if the shipping time was a little more reasonable. It really took a long time to get here. The product it self... amazing!
