Hey, just saying, if you take off the backplate and coat the face with this artist's spray then it will protect the signatures. I use this stuff all the time and it shouldn't take much to seal a sharpie mark on plastic. You should be able to keep a generally matte finish, while also letting you use it normally.
I would do this whether you want to showcase it or not, since it's also UV resistant and will keep it from discoloring/fading. Just make sure you mask the grills/vents and coat the kickstand separately. You should only need 1 or 2 very light coats. We're talking 30 minutes tops with an overnight dry.
I spray a glossy clear UV protection coat. It seals the paint to the rock and helps it last, I don't suspect forever but much longer than if it went without. Something like this:
Do you think this would be a suitable sealant?
I would not suggest that.
Instead there are several spray varnishes that are good for drawing, ink, watercolor, and other paint mediums. They will not only give your drawing a universal look but also wil protect the surface. Krylon is probably the cheapest and you can probably find it at any art supply or craft store. Theres other brands out there too if you don’t like krylon.
Yeah you don’t need to paint over your business to get rid of the matte, just give it a bit of varnish love. Do it in a clean well ventilated area btw, this stuff will skunk you out.
what laminate have you used? i use this UV laminate spray. i like to use 3 light coats of this stuff on my stickers, waiting 15+ minutes in between coats.
There is UV clear-coat paints. Not sure how well they work on figures. This is one some people online mentioned for model trains, though reports of success were mix (favoring successful).
For outside maybe try some outdoor clear coat, something that blocks uv rays. Amazon has this one but I've seen other options at my local big box stores as well.
As for the temperature point you mentioned, the inside could be a lot cooler if you don't have single pane windows as the inner late would be insulated from the outer layer.
I coated it with a clear acrylic sealer and it seems to give it a slight tacky feeling compared to the original paint. I'm honestly not experienced with enough different tama to really give a great breakdown on it, and my skills are subpar so I'm no better or worse with it than my others haha.
Yeah no problem sorry it took me a while this is what i used on my board it's held up well for me so far.
Buy some clear spray on acrylic. It will take a few coats but you’ll add a lot more life to your pieces.
Yup, you want something that'll make a clear coat on top to help stop clouding. Spray is pretty easy, just make sure you choose one with uv resistance
That should work but I tend to see people like rustoleum also
They'll keep curing whenever exposed to uv. They'd eventually get brittle because of it.
Though, ether way they look great and I now want a set.
*Something like this,
should work. Though I'd go with satin not gloss.

>Not sure about that stuff about the sun though.
I 3D print on a regular basis. In fact I taught students how to 3D print at a local library as a volunteer for almost 2 years.
PLA is known to have terrible longevity, specially when exposed to sunlight for even a sort period of time. Tests have been conducted on a wide variety of 3D printing filaments and PLA consistently degrades substantially when exposed to sunlight; even for as little as an hour. Degraded PLA is physically brittle, which may not be a problem for an object with 100% infill (assuming you did this). But for most objects, they tend to delaminate where the layers join.
Yes, you can use a UV resistant spray lacquer.
But it would be much better to find a UV resistant filament like ASA. Matter hackers sells spools of them for not too much.
thank you u/bingagain24. i was looking into using ll weather clearcoat... something like https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00397STRW/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1. any opinions ?
Something like this?
I like spray acrylic with UV protectant. I prefer matte, but you might like the satin. Give it a couple of good coats.
How often does she unlock you? If it's not real frequent, you can use a clear spray (clear coat paint) like this and reapply periodically
After some research I've been spraying my works with a UV protectant spray.
