This index is a list of what is safe and not safe to use on your doll. I've researched everything thoroughly before posting, but I still am not liable for any damage caused from using anything listed. Anything that is questionable for use on resin is noted as such. I have coded the questionables as follows: "\" next to it, that means someone said NO, but with no other confirmation or not having used any other product ever. "^" means at least one person recommended it and a "?" means that there was no answer on using this product."Sealants"
There are a lot of sealants out there and not everyone is able to get the almighty Mister Super Clear, so here is a list of sealants and whether or not they can be used, according to DoA. Always remember to use a "matte" or "flat" product unless you want your $600 doll looking like Barbie's giant shiny cousin.DoA A-OK ->
(in order of awesome) Mr Super Clear Matte/UV Cut, Model Masters Lusterless (flat) Lacquer Overcoat, Mr Top Coat Matte, Testors Dullcote. Questionable ->

*There has been a lot of debate over whether acetone = bad, so to be on the safe side, I recommend not using it. If you do use it, rinse very well and often with water and wash doll afterward to remove residue.
