Default Medium For Matte/Satin Coated Photos


A local art gallery where I live mounts photos to wooden boards and coats them with a proprietary "acrylic emulsion". I have some of my own photos I'd like mounted in this fashion but I cannot afford their rates to do so. The finish is somewhat slightly above a matte texture. If you run your fingers over it, it's a bit rough and bumpy. It does a good job of bringing out the colors in the photo without producing a shiny finish.

I'm sure they custom make this by mixing things together, so I realize I'm probably not going to find the exact product. However, does anyone know of anything close to try? I've looked at Mod Podge, Liquitex, and a couple other things to no avail.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you,

I would have suggested Mod Podge so I am not much help here.

What kind did you use? There are all different types of Mod Podge these days.
