I'm looking at ordering some colored sandstone statues and I wanted to ask if anyone knows if I can put some kind of sealant or topcoat on them in order to prevent the colors from running in case they get wet. Any help would be amazing on this!!

I work here
You could try some sort of clear urethane spray.

I don't think it would make it totally waterproof but it would certainly help protect the colors.

Let us know if you do any experiments!
