Hi, I’m a changeling and i make my antlers, during E3 we all know the whole rain situation, during this my antlers got water damaged, any ideas for products to protect paint against chipping and water damage?
My horns are papier-mâché. I used many (10+) light coats of spray matte acrylic varnish on them. I dodged the worst of the rain but still got pretty damp, and they are unscathed.
Get a few coats of outdoor varnish on them.
You could even get an acrylic resin as a first coat, and then put a varnish on.
If they are hollow, might be worth making sure the coat goes under the lip and up it a litlte.
