WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm -

Timeless Print Varnish has a 12 month shelf life when stored within our recommended storage conditions. We recommend a temperature-controlled environment between 65° and 75°F and 35% to 65% relative humidity. Do not store in direct sunlight. It is preferred to store in its original container with the tight fitting lid.

Since each person's environment and use of Timeless can vary, it can be difficult to put a firm number to how much surface area coating will cover for your specifically. With that in mind, our estimates are as follows:

One gallon of Timeless: 300-400 sq.ft. (about 157 prints at 16"x20")
One quart of Timeless: 75-100 sq.ft. (about 87 prints at 16"x20")
One pint of Timeless: 38-50 sq.ft. (about 10 prints at 16"x20")

Breathing Color Timeless/G2 Varnish is designed to coat printed matte canvas and fine art paper manufactured by Breathing Color. For any other manufacturer, we strongly recommend coating a test piece with a small sample of our varnish before coating larger pieces, as we cannot guarantee compatibility. Breathing Color's Satin and Glossy coated canvasses like Crystalline, 17M, and Silverada do not need to be varnished. For photo papers, acrylic spray varnish is recommended over Timeless/G2

No, we don't recommend it. Water-based mediums interact with the water-based varnish in undesirable ways, like smearing or most common ink bleed where it seeps.

Remember: Timeless and G2 are formulated specifically to work with IRC [inkjet receptive coating] on our media.

PRO TIP: When in doubt, ABT --"Always be testing!"

While we recommend using Timeless with inkjet media, we also encourage creative experimentation. We recommend applying Timeless to a couple of test prints so that you're not running the risk of damaging an original. 

Oils are designed to be thinned with either a matting or glossing medium like an clear linseed thinner or amber oil which can discolor with our water-based varnishes. Using Oil based paints OVER our varnish does work well.
