Hahnemühle Varnish is a ready-to-use mix that was designed to suit every Hahnemühle or HARMAN by Hahnemühle canvas. This non-yellowing coating was created to enhance the UV protection and archivability of our canvases. Using the Varnish adds colour vibrancy and water-resistance to your canvas.


Hahnemühle Varnish can be applied easily with a hand roller directly onto the canvas inkjet print. Make sure your prints are completely hard-dried (we recommend allowing the print to dry 24 hours prior to varnishing), as well as dust and lint-free. Before use, thoroughly stir Hahnemühle Varnish for at least 2-3 minutes to achieve an even consistency. Pour a small amount into a roller tray and saturate a foam roller evenly. Using consistent pressure, start rolling in different directions until the entire print is coated. Let Hahnemühle Varnish dry for 2-3 minutes, then roll the entire area once again – this time without pressure. About 30 min. later, Hahnemühle Varnish will become dry to the touch.

Please note: The drying time depends on the thickness of the layers and other factors such as humidity, air
circulation and ambient temperature. We recommend allowing the print to rest overnight.

Protecting Your Prints

Hahnemühle Varnish Matte renders canvas inkjet prints UV and water resistant. The varnish is hand-rolled directly onto the image and then allowed to dry. Once dry, the coating will be totally clear.
