Seems same as Hahnemuhle protective spra


from Williamsburg, VA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I had almost run out of Hahnemuhle protective spray and it was out of stock, so I ordered Moab. I have used it on a matte print and it seems to be the same quality and formulation as Hahnemuhle. Worked just fine and sprayed on the same. Highly recommend. Also, spray your photos outside in a non windy place as this item does smell when spraying.


Visit Moab for Beutiful Images


from Loveland, CO  -  Pro Photographer

I create digital images on Polar Matte for exhibit in shows and galleries. I like to display them framed without glass. The Moab Desert Varnish provides a beautiful coating which not only protects the image but prolongs image life and improves image contrast. The finished product looks like a painting from a distance. I will continue to use Moab Desert Varnish on all my matte images.

Did I spray that print?


from Nashville, TN.  -  Frequent User

Product goes on prints very well and once dry, you don't know it's there. I have used Sureguard and Krylon sprays in the past. After using Desert Varnish, there is no other spray for me. Desert Varnish from this point forward.

The perfect finish


from Rhinelander, Wisconsin  -  Frequent User

As advertised, Moab Desert Varnish does not affect the original paper finish - glossy stays glossy, matte stays matte. This product give a nice archival protection to help reduce minor scuffs or finger prints.

Ajay B  Hi, Suggest me the best spray to protect my Lab printed kodak matt print photographs from moisture. Most of the time we found the problem if we keep our prints in humid wether they stick to each other. can we spray them and protect them?
KENNETH C  This is designed for digital prints, and it's excellent, can't say how would react to Kodak print paper. My guess is in humid conditions any prints would still stick together when stacked againest each other.
