MM12 Clear Sealer
Specially formulated for folk art techniques.
MM12 Clear Sealer can be used on raw wood if you are not using a Matisse Background Colour (which has a built-in sealer) and want to paint a design on the raw wood leaving the natural grain revealed. It can also be used on glass, ceramics, terracotta pots and new metal. All surfaces should be clean and dust-free before MM12 Clear Sealer application.
For porous surfaces such as wood, terracotta pots, unfired ceramics, etc. apply diluted with up to 1 part water to 2 parts MM12 Clear Sealer.
You can also stain and seal wood at the same time. For a great effect, add a small amount of Matisse Flow artists acrylic in the desired colour and apply evenly, finishing one surface at a time.
Water-resistant, quick drying and flexible.
Available in 250ml and 1 Litre sizes.
MM12 used in Surface Preparation on Canvas
As Derivan and Matisse Acrylics are a water based media, they can be safely applied directly onto canvas. However, it is always advisable to seal the canvas first and this can be achieved easily with MM12 Clear Sealer. Sealing the raw canvas will increase its longevity, by protecting its fibers. As canvas is quite porous, it tends to mark and stain quite easily and sealing the surface will decrease this tendency. Sealing will also help to protect cotton and linen canvas from mould and bacteria and prevent the paint staining through the canvas to the other side when using the paint in a thin liquid form.
