Default RE: sealing paint job on foam

I use vinyl floor wax on my foamies that are painted with water base craft type paints. The brand names over here that I have used are Mop & Glow and Future. Do a check and see what is the same over there. It seals the paint, gives the flat-matte finish of craft paints more depth and sort of a satin sheen. Also helps a little on little bumps and dents but not much. Some guys are mixing the stuff with the paint 50/50 when they paint, but I have not tried this yet. I got some craft paint that smeared when it got dew on it and I applied Future to it and it sealed it up no problem, no more smears. Also some guys use it to apply tissue paper to open structures and it shrinks it and hardens nicely....Good Stuff!!!!!!!
Good Luck
