Irresistables Heat Set Paint (IRHSP) Matte Varnish is a brand new formula that when applied over the desired paint surface creates a smooth matte finish. This product can be used as a sealer but it is our suggestion to use thinning medium as a final sealer. IRHSP Matte is best used to create depth or a smooth finish to the skin of any doll. If you plan to root the head, although not necessary, consider using the IRHSP Matte for everywhere except the top of the head that is being rooted. To seal the head before rooting, we suggest using our IRHSP Thinning. In the artists world it is known that varnishes are harder than mediums so as to avoid cracking or white pin dots when inserting the needles, leave the IRHSP Matte off of this area and seal it with thinning or any sealant of your choosing.
You can apply this product straight from the jar or by mixing it with either thinning medium or solvent. The trick to using it out of the jar is to apply it in sections, pounce it very well so you don’t see any white and make sure to get in all of the crevices and creases without leaving any residue. Let it sit for a few minutes before baking. You will have the optimal results if applied as stated above.
This product is compatible with any heat set paint products including Genesis. You will love the new consistency and have fun being creative with this product to make sure you are happy with the end result. Ultimately, it leaves a beautiful matte finish that is very smooth.
DIRECTIONS for Matte Varnish: After heat setting the paint, let it cool to room temperature. Place some IRHSP matte varnish on a palette and stir with a spatula to make it more fluid or stir it well in the jar. Using a wide brush, apply one thin coat of the matte varnish evenly over the paint. Heat to 265 degrees just like the IRHSP colors and bake for 9 minutes. Do not heat above 350. You can bake IRHSP Matte as many times as needed but it is essential that it is baked and cured fully.
