can I apply polyurethane of arcylic craft paint


I am making wooden lawn ornaments, and need to protect the paint from fading or chipping. I tried the spray on laquer but the paint just chipped off. So I was going to put urethane on it but what kind would be the best to use and how to apply it so it comes out clear and no bubbles

I believe Minwax makes a spar uretane in rattlecan which should do the job for you. Make sure you get the Spar for the UV protection.

Look to marine paint outlets and suppliers for your best outdoor options. You may want to consider two part urethanes, for example. Make sure you get the UV protection in whatever you buy and as John suggests. Last thing you want is your clear coats lasting forever with all your colors underneath faded away.
