Best clear coat over painted stock?
I painted a camo pattern on a GI glass stock. I used Krylon camo spray paint and it came out very nice. (No pic as I am too dumb to work my child's digital camera) What is the best (most scratch and solvent proof) clear satin spray finish to buy?

I use American Accents avvailable at HD. In 5 years it is the only one that I have found too be compatible with a wide variety to paints.
Some clear finishes willl blister or ripple the paint surface they are sprayed on thus ruining your work.
Krylon also make a 1311 Matte Clear that should work as well.

I used Brownell's Aluma-hyde II flat clear coat on mine, and I like it. But be advised that, in spite of its name, it's more like a coarse satin finish than actual flat. And yes, I did shake the can thoroughly.

I just clear coated my stock with a spray on polyurethane used for wood, comes in satin but it does have a bit of a shine to it, very hard though. If it's good enough for a floor finish it should do fine on a stock. I used "Varathane" although "Minwax" also has a polyurethane satin in a spray can. Make sure your paint is totally dry and hardened, couple of weeks in a warm dry spot should cure it well or else the polyurethane might make it run if the paint is still soft. Good luck.

I have also use the Brownells Aluma-Hyde II matt clear and found that is was much too satin or even gloss. If you get about 2 feet back and spray it will be a more satin finish.
Then I tried the matte clear Brownells Baking Lacquer and it definitely works the best. It should be the toughest finish you can get in a can. You will need your own air brush for this product.
