Make Your Own Stop-Out Varnish for Intaglio Printmaking with GOLDEN Acrylics

    • Hello Steve, Thank you for your question. The Stop-Out recipe is designed to work with Ferric Chloride. Nitric acid would be too strong and would likely cause the acrylic to break down. Hopefully this helps if you have more questions feel free to email us at help@goldenpaints.com

    • Hello Ailsa,

      You could certainly make a mixture of this and it should keep a long time as long as the container is properly sealed and stored in normal room conditions. We recommend making the mix with the concentrated Polymer Varnish and the Carbon Black and diluting this for each use and not storing long term the diluted mixture. If you did need to store a diluted mixture in the short term, we would recommend using distilled water to avoid potential for microbial growth that can develop from tap water. We hope this answers your question, let us know if you have more for us!

      Best Regards,

      Scott
