Re: Can anyone recommend a good matte varnish for polymer clay?
hi potatocake, i've used varathane polyurethane made by rust-oleum (water based) before, it was gloss finish i believe, i've used this product many times and it's always come out very nicely. I have not used the matte finish version of this product line, but i looked up on amazon Varathane Polyurethane Clear Interior Matte Finish (not sure if i can post links to amazon so i wont)some reviews there with pictures of there finished product, the post that caught my eye was 3 reviews down with a very nice finished piece of wood they used this on it looked very good. but there you go, rule of thumb any sealer has to be water based if your going to use it with polymer clay, i could be wrong but, this is the only brand i use or will ever use unless somone recommends me something better. Water based varathane polyurethane is a very good product, i would not recommend any sealer that comes from a spray can. Miniatures that i worked on and sprayed with a sealer from a spray can came out sticky/tacky later on. hope this helps.
