I have a HVLP fuji sprayer. I would like a matte finish spray to protect matte surfaces after printing. Any recommendations for protective sprays that are designed for matter papers?

Premier Print Shield spray---in an aerosol can.

If I need more protection on matte fine art papers, I use Breathing Color's Timeless matte----and roll it on.  HVLP sprayer doesn't work as well here for me.

Hi Ken -- just confirming: you roll Breathing Color's Timeless matte varnish on ink-jet prints and ... don't put them under glass?  I've been looking for a way to sell matte prints without glass.  Much of my work has extensive black areas, which are, IME, especially prone to bruising.  Thanks.  --Kirby.

Hi Kirby,

I'm not a fan of rolling. It's not that rolling is so difficult, but that HVLP is so much easier.  That being said, I've found that when applying a sealant/protectant heavier than something like Premier Art Print Shield---rolling works best to really work in the varnish.  I haven't had good luck with other varnishes like Glamour II; only rolling Timeless works for me consistently. 

These prints have been off of an Epson 9900. Some have gone under glass anyway, but I've actually been stretching the prints like a gallery wrapped canvas.  It's not something that I do often.

I do believe I might have made a small video (not sure I can find it) pouring coffee and ice cream on a matte print (protected with Timeless) and rinsing it off with water.   Grin
