I would like to know the answer to this question also. I use to use bountiful baby air dry gloss, but they no longer sell it. Paper glaze works well, but wondering what other artist are using.

I started using Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic Gloss UV Varnish. Many years of trial and error with products that end up sticky, so far I like this one.
Winsor & Newton Gloss UV Varnish This is for Air Dry

And one of Genesis:
Winsor & Newton Gloss Varnish for Oil paints

Personally, I plan to try the first one with the dolls I am working on now-I am using GHSP instead of air dry, not sure what will happen, hopefully no peeling.

I love to use the Prisma pencils but need a way to seal them and add a bit of gloss. Seems like heat changes most of them to red. Do you think the Winsor & Newton Gloss UV Varnish for air dry would do a nice job? I use Genises to paint.
