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.
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.
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.
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.
