Well, believe it or not, but I've used Titebond II as a finish coat on various things, sometimes thinned 50/50, sometimes as is. Dries to a sort of amber color, but if you want clear, Elmer's should work.
Years ago I called the Franklin company and asked about using Titebond II for a finish. And was told that some professional woodcarvers cover work that is meant to stay outdoors, with several coats of Titebond II. I've got a proof of concept chess set I'm working on that I decided I'd use the Titebond II on, to see how it looks.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
