We have some paint we want to use on our table but are unsure of what seal it with or if a sealer is even needed on an eating surface.
Any advice will be appreciated.
TIA
Josh

I don't think latex is a good choice for a table top. Tables get plenty of little dings and nicks and scrapes, and latex is notoriously easy to scuff and mar.

Oil based paints dry harder and flow together better if you are going to brush it. A flooring enamel would be even better.

I'm a novice finisher but I feel fairly confident I am not leading you wrong here. There may be even better options for you though maybe one of our resident finishers will notice the thread.
