Breathing Color to Release Glamour III Varnish

Breathing Color’s new Glamour III Satin finish is still in beta testing

Breathing Color will be releasing its new Glamour III varnish coating for canvas soon.  Fans of the original highly touted Glamour II varnish need not worry, as Glamour III is not intended as a replacement product.  Glamour III will be offered in three finishes: matte, satin, and glossy.  Interestingly enough, I have been told by Breathing Color that the glossy finish is supposed to have a higher gloss than the Glamour II gloss, which has more of a gentle gloss. 

Glamour III is intended to be applied directly from the container by roller or HVLP spray gun without dilution.  Glamour II requires dilution with water.  Glamour III is aimed at professional printers who do not coat canvasses often or those seeking to simplify the varnish coating process.
Breathing Color has asked me to help beta test the Glamour III satin finish.  As soon as the dust settles in the studio’s new showroom (more on this later!) I look forward to trying the new Glamour III satin on Breathing Color’s Chromata White canvas and their new Lyve Canvas as well.  Keep an eye out here for more details soon!
For more information on fine portraiture on museum gallery wrapped canvas or fine art giclee print reproduction for artists and photographers, you may contact me at my boutique studio in Carmel, CA at (831) 626-1844.  Photographic copy work for artists is done with medium format digital utilizing Phase One’s new P65+ digital back,  the world’s first full-frame medium format sensor with 60.5 megapixels!   kmd
*Update*  There is definitely something still in the works for Breathing color’s New Glamour III.  It remains in beta testing to make sure it meets quality expectations.   The current satin finish is still being tweaked, though one of the artists that did a test print liked what she saw at least preliminarily.  More to follow…

  1. I’ll be testing it next week as well Ken. I’ll let you know what I find with it. Kept one of my newest Coyote Buttes pieces printed on Lyve unfinished yesterday so I can try the Glamour III.
