I don't want to paint my plaster walls, they look beautiful as is. Is there are clear sealant?

    I think that my newly plastered walls look great and I don't want to paint them.
    Is there are clear sealant that I can put on them? Or is this just a bad idea?

    Thanks!

    They should start selling multi finsh pink then you could paint them the same colour as the plaster.

    Hygroscopy (etymology and pronunciation) is the ability of a substance to attract and hold water molecules from the surrounding environment. This is achieved through either absorption or adsorption with the absorbing or adsorbing substance becoming physically changed somewhat.


    So basically it's a good idea to paint..You could take a photo and colour match
    Me personally think White Matt emulsion is the best to brighten up a room and look modern.
    Thanks Vince

    Clear water based varnish, matt or gloss finish, seen it done in a shop & some of those mad interior designers did it on a job once on a stairwell.

    Sorry mate it's technical and obviously not all 'plasterers ' on this forum are aware but that's why this forum is better than Facebook .
    Plaster is hygroscopic
    Just google it and hopefully you will understand.


    Happy new year bud.

    Polyvine dead flat matt decorators' varnish. Water based, works a treat.

    What Chris said sounds ok, I got LTP Mattstone sealer for tiles, that would prob work too and stay matt. Not sure how it would take paint after as it's white spirit based
