Spray UV-Resistant Clear Glossy Spray
Sep 24, 2013

I picked up a can of this protectant spray at the local J.C. Moore from their Art Dept.
I sprayed one of the B&Ws that I printed on Canon Pro Luster Paper on the PRO-100.

Two quick passes across and up and down. Let it dry and though this should really be done preferably outside or with plenty of ventilation, it produced a gorgeous finish on this paper. Dried to the touch within 20 minutes. Now let see how it protects this print from fading. I have a duplicate without the Spray UV-Resistant Clear Gloss. Though I am not into accelerated fade testing I will tape them to my window. Though it doesn't really get any direct sunlight it definitely gets plenty of light. No the glass window by itself will block some UV but this should be a fairly good test.

Actually I've always been a bit against sprays as I did not think I could apply an even enough coat. But this was very easy and the over all surface turned out to be extremely even and smooth.

I will spray a canvas print I did a few weeks ago on Matte Canvas and see what it takes to but a medium gloss on it.

I will leave the two B&Ws on luster on the window till Christmas then check and report what happens.

I also have a third print with no coating inside a print box away from all light.

I will do the same with a set of color prints
