I've been making wooden bangle bracelets on a lathe for awhile now. Lately I've been experimenting with different things to make the bracelets more dynamic and interesting. These bracelets were turned on the lathe. Then the lines were burned in with a wood burning tool. Then I hand painted and sealed them. I think they're kind of neat. Does anyone know of a good shiny sealer for wood and acrylic paint? I used a polyacrylic sealer but it makes white paint turn brownish. Thanks for looking!

A water based product called "Stays Clear" is something I often use. It comes in a low lustre and a high gloss.

Love them! I actually like that the white isn't a pure blinding white. But since you do, maybe try a clear acrylic spray lacquer. Our household has been using "Utilac acrylic sealer" for various little projects, and we all rather like the results.

Thanks everyone! I guess I'll have to do some experimenting with different sealers.
