Gel Topcoats w/UVLS are available in both Gloss and Semi-Gloss sheens. With the benefit of ultraviolet light filters and stabilizers, these gels provide a non-removable, water-based topcoat offering protection against fading for digital media, collage, or any material below the topcoat. In addition, these gels can be used to add texture, create a clear barrier prior to working with paint or other materials and modify sheen.

In extensive testing, a 10 mil film of the Gel Topcoat has provided a similar degree of UV protection as GOLDEN MSA Varnishes. When used as a final layer, these gels should greatly increase the longevity and lightfastness of whatever digital media you are working with. However, if exhibiting your pieces without glass, we still strongly recommend applying one of our removable varnishes in addition to the Gel Topcoat to facilitate cleaning and future conservation.

While initially developed as a topcoat for digital prints, GOLDEN Gel Topcoats are fully compatible with other GOLDEN Gels, Mediums, and Acrylic Colors and therefore, can be used whenever their attributes are needed. For example, they can be used to create gel skins, image gel transfers, decoupage collage elements, extend paints or increase their transparency, create a wet layer to work into, or simply as a clear ground to work on top of. Just keep in mind that whenever these gels are mixed with other materials, the degree of protection is reduced. Maximum protection is only afforded when the gel sits up on top of the layer it needs to protect. Fugitive materials mixed into the gel will not fully benefit from its ability to provide UV protection.
