Sealing joint mud.

I have been floating complete walls with joint mud to a smooth finish and then painting them. However the current room I am working on I was meant to plaster but didn't research in time so I added the paint color directly to the mud and did 2 thin coats. It looks really good but I figure I have to seal it. Has anyone got any suggestions on products to use. Something that wont change the integral colour and will not gloss up too much. Appreciate it.

A polyurethane with whatever sheen you want. I've never heard of adding paint to compound. Can you post a photo?

Waterbased poly will remain completely clear, may have trouble finding a matte though.

Clear acrylic satin works well or Zar flat polyurethane dries quick and gives a very low sheen effect.
