Covering a Canvas With Varnish and Gel
In order to protect the canvas from harmful effects of light and dust and to make it look more like a painted picture, we can cover it with a varnish after printing. This provides a thick and uniform layer of varnish so that the art print looks like a real painting.
To enhance the realism of the reproduction on the canvas even more, texture gel may be applied. The print will be even less distinguishable from the original picture painted by the artist. Brush strokes, very similar to strokes of paint, will appear.
You should understand that it does not make sense to add texture gel to prints, drawings, watercolor paintings, and classical works with great attention to detail and no visible strokes, as it will make the painting look awkward. Texture gel is a great option when strokes are visible on the painting itself, as it will add the necessary volume. Gel is applied manually with a brush, stroke by stroke.
Additionally we create stunning quality canvas prints with high-gloss epoxy resin clear coat. Here are some photos:
