New to me anyway.
I have been looking for an easy topcoat for mache.
that way I can just paint and then coat it.
I got some http://sculpturalarts.com/foamcoating.htm
and also http://sculpturalarts.com/clearcoats.htm
today. I have applied the flat plastic varnish to Eyegore, and it even removed any shine he still had, its almost too flat. I waited for it to dry and then sprinkled him down with some water. It beaded and rolled off for the most part, leaving him very dry.
I am also in the process of making a mache cast of the boomer skull using sculpt or coat. I'll let ya know how that turns out.
The flat plastic varnish was 16 dollars for a quart. I used less than 1/8 of a cup on eyegore, im thinking it will be more cost effective than polyurethane

Some other coating products that you could use are vanillacryl or Steve's Foam Coat http://www.fxsupply.com/materials/foamcoat.html

I also read good things about mixing things like sand or styrofoam beads into these products to add texture.
I was talking to the folks at the theatre supply store here, and they said they mix dirt, gold fleck, sand whatever in sculpt or coat and then use that. They showed me dirt mixed in the stuff and it looked like dirt but was very hard like plastic. Cool stuff. Thanks for the link
