Making indoor paintings outdoor proof


I want to start decorating the walls on our deck and a lot of the pictures i would like to use are canvas or photographs.

Is there a clear coat product i can paint/spray on them to help them withstand the elements?

Thanks

Sarah

I would think a good clear coat lacquer with a matte finish should do well protecting the pictures form the elements.
Also true for the frame.

If the pictures/paintings are behind glass you could seal around the frame with sillicone to make waterproof.
