You might see if Krylon has a clear-coat in its "Fusion" line of paints for plastic. Rustoleum has a similar line too. Lots of us use these paints underwater.

What are you trying to coat?

I know that I kinda-sorta-not-really answered this question in another thread of yours, and I totally forgot about fiberglass. You don't actually need the fiberglass cloth to use the epoxy that holds it together. Just the epoxy and resin will do fine for clear coating. You can find fiberglass epoxy at home depot in the paint section. You can look up DIY plywood aquariums to find the epoxy that folks use. Only problem is, most of them use stuff for ponds, so it's usually black, rather than clear. But the stuff I just got from home depot over the weekend is totally clear. I'll look at the stuff I got, and give you the name brand if you want.

As a matter of fact, yes, I always post, or reply, in novels. I'm adding it to my signature because it seems like I say it in every post!
