To apply a nice, durable, shinny finish after painting to protect the wood and paint.
This is acrylic paint but because it is water based it dries dull like milk paint.
Can I do it or not ?

If it was me I would take a scrap piece of wood and test it see how it turns out I wouldnt see why it wouldn't work as long as the paint is fully cured but either way I would still test it to see if it even looks good or not

Dont forget to live life for fear of death grasp each day and live it to it full otherwise it is pointless.

Sounds like a safe bet Paul. I would have already done so but I kinda' figured some one on here would have tried it already and could have let me know so I didn't have to LOL !
I think I'll buy some enamel paints this weekend though or maybe some oil based acrylic to work with so I get a better finish. Water based worked out great for an aged look to the dragon I painted ( although it looked to be very bright, and to a degree it was, the paints I used on the dragon faded and chalked up a bit after fully curing. (Which was fine because it really did give it a nice patina after I poly coated it.)
I want something bright and even coated for projects I have coming up.
I may buy a small airbrush set up ?

How often does a professional house painter paint a decorative wooden figure 8" long ?
Its comparing apples to oranges Jerry. Two completely different goals, two completely different projects. Thank you for the valuable input though. ( not being sarcastic, just overjoyed and grateful )
