Hi everyone!
I have printed my model in full-color sandstone and I know this material's color will fade with water and I want it to keep it's original epicness.
What products can I use to ''seal'' or produce a mat-finish on my part without altering the colors? Also, what type of glue would you recommend?
I was thinking of gluing the part to metal with contact-cement, but I'm not sure what to do to varnish it... any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
Anthony Lemire
