To bring these creations to life, acrylic varnish is used as both an adhesive and a final sealant. Initially, a very small amount is used to cement each image into position. When the composition is completed, many edges are still very flexible and malleable. At this point, three or four thin coats of acrylic matte varnish are then carefully brushed on all exposed surfaces. This treatment unifies the resultant structure and gives the new work an even non-glare finish. It also protects the entire piece against dirt, dust and UV damage. This is the same archival permanent varnish that has traditionally been used to protect acrylic paintings for generations.
