Default Painted polymer clay pendants - the right sealer?

Hi guys, I've been looking for a good sealer for my polymer clay jewerly.
I make necklaces out of white Fimo pro polymer clay and paint them with Amsterdam acrylics. They need to be able to handle being used, so I need a good sealer to start selling my product!

I tried a type of epoxy resin and it didn't get hard - i suspect this is because of the plasticizer in the polymer clay?

Anyone who can help me out?

Try Varathane (brand name) It's a polyurethane varnish that I used when making my polymer clay Chakra bracelets . You can get it in gloss, semi-gloss and satin.

Default Lisa Pavelka Magic Glos

I would recommend Lisa Pavelka's Magic Glos. Once it's applied to your clay it can harden in the sun or under a UV lamp. It works great with polyclay, domes easily for a thick glasslike effect. You can get it here... https://www.firemountaingems.com/itemdetails/h204480bs

Try Lisa Pavelka's "Magic Glos". It's made for use with polyclay, dries quick in the sun or under a UV lamp, domes easily for a thick glass-like effect. You can also apply it, wait for it to dry and and add more polyclay and bake it over and over again. You can get it here... https://www.firemountaingems.com/itemdetails/h204480bs

Try Magic Glos by Lisa Pavelka. It's made for use with polyclay, it domes easily if you want that thick "glass-like" effect, it cures quickly in sunlight or under a UV lamp and it can be baked with your polymer clay over and over, so you can keep adding and embellishing if you want. You can get it here... http://www.craftforum.com/f14/painted-polymer-clay-pendants-right-sealer-11297/#post78969
