Varnishes for Air-Dry Clay

Hi everybody! I was just talking about varnishing your air-dry clay creations a while ago. The varnish that i currently use is by FolkArt and they are available at most good art supply stores. What's featured here are three types: The Matte Sealer - it does a good job of preventing mildew to form. If you don't need a glossy look, this will do just fine.
The other two types give you the high shine. As in all aerosol-type sprays, make sure your ventilation is very good when you do the spraying. This can mean going outdoors to spray :-)
