You should be able to
use any market standard polyurethane over acrylic paint and stain. If the stain
is a turpentine base though, you should seal the surface with a neutral sealer
(i.e. shellac) first. Otherwise I would recommend a coat of Tung or Danish oil.
Both should dry within 24 hours ready for use. Ultimately –for a fairly
authentic finish- I would recommend thinned (50% / 50%) boiled linseed and gum
turpentine mix, several coats, wiped down. However this does take a week or
more to cure…..

coat top finish
Anyone have experience with a wipe on clear top coat that will go on over stain and acrylic paint?
I was hoping for a wipe on finish due to time restrictions.
I'd spray on laquer, but it's $4 per can and I don't have a compressor....
