Clear Finish is a water based, NO VOC, all natural, non-yellowing acrylic varnish. It is formulated for ultimate clarity with a satin to glossy finish. It is water resistant and will protect your painted finishes, once cured. Clear Finish works well with your Chalk Paint ® “whites” as it will keep them bright and not lift any color or stain from beneath. It is great on cabinets and works well over foil, leafing or high sheen finishes. Do not use over wax like you would with Clear Topcoat Sealer. Shake or stir before application.
