    Hey there. What's the best way to protect the acrylic on a custom Transformer? I don't want my figures to get busted up and what not. I'd like to get a smooth finish if possible. Do I need to wet sand a spray-on clear? I've just recently really gotten into painting figures and I'm still trying to learn. Thanks for reading.

    This figure needs clear still.

    AWESOME - Thanks! I remember reading that before, but then I totally forgot about it. I went to Shop-Rite and got a 27fl.oz. bottle for $6.88 - I poured a tablespoon, cleared THREE figures, and still have some in the cup! This stuff goes on smooth and dries within minutes. After transforming SG Hound and SG Cliffjumper I didn't notice any scrapes. Great product!
