I need some help.
I want to clear coat after I scale. I use Createx and Wildlife colors, water based.
What do you recommend?

Take this with a grain of salt since I've not been doing this all that long...but.
I've tried 2 intermediate tops coats. First was Rustoleums outdoor spar urethane, and that stuff did not stick to createx all that well and peeled off after a few hours of testing.
The second was Rustoleums American Accents Clear top coat(got it at Orchard Supply). I beleive thay have a matt and a gloss version. This stuff has worked better for me.

I do not know much about different types of clearcoats, but if the scales are made to a metal foil, I would recommend an epoxy, even if thinned.

Just shoot it with Createx's clear and then you can epoxy over it later. I've been doing that for a while with great success...and it solves any problems of colors not being compatible with Etex, my preferred topcoat.
