Advice--I need a finish for a steer's skull
My project is a turquoise-covered longhorn skull. I want to paint the skull black (I'm thinking rustoleum black spray, it seems easy enough) and then lacquer it so it will be shiny--I need advice on what the best lacquer would be.
I'm looking for a lacquer that is clear and will not discolor over time. High high high gloss. I also want to build the lacquer up in numerous, thin layers--I want it to have slightly squishy, deep look. Since this is for decorative purposes the lacquer doesn't have to hold up to strong wear-and-tear, but it must look gorgeous. My focus is on looks.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It is especially helpful if the lacquer is easy to find on the internet or in most hardware stores
Thank you so much everybody!
