Need a good sealer for display board

Postby GregSwanson » Thu Mar 10, 2011 2:32 pm

Just wondering does anyone have a good sealer that works to keep your display board intact? Would be even more beneficial if it was spray on.
Thanks

What is the display board made of? Are you sealing paint, or flock?

I used a wood stain and then a polyurethain spray on my display box, for the wooden panels, and that has held up well.

For flocked parts though - I don't know. Maybe something like a krylon matte sealer spray?

I seal mine with Createx Matte Varnish. Goes through my airbrush at ~40psi, mixed with a little Illustration Base.

The nice part is you can spray indoors (so long as you wear protection) in the cold/rainy weather. Dries in ~30mins-2hrs. It also won't melt foam like spray can sealant will.
