As you might remember, I was looking for sealer spray a while ago because I couldn't find any where I live.
Well, I found some online, asked a store if they could get some, and now I have a can of GHIANT's acrylic clearlack-thing, which I thought was what I was looking for. (It costed $13! )

But when I tested it, however, it appears that the figures become sticky! Especially the sculpey-areas, but also areas that I haven't even painted (untouched plastic the way the original figure was)
It's pretty annoying considering I bought this crap to make the figures better and protect them from stickyness and stuff like that.

So any suggestions on what might have gone wrong or what I might do to fix it? Is it the stupid spray's fault, or is it me that's at fault?!

Here's the spray I have and when looking for it on their website I found this. Could that be what I should have gotten instead?

OK, I bet my figures might be dirty then. I hope it's not the paint at least! But I don't understand why the sculpey becomes extra sticky (it is only the bendy sculpey that's extra sticky though, I think)

The stickyness has something to do with your paint or if you washed the figure or if there's soap residue on it, lots of different things it could be. I bought a can of Krylon Matte Finish Sealer a long time ago and it worked flawlessly on some figures but on others it made them REALLY STICKY. I still have a figure that was sticky 3 years ago AND IT'S STILL STICKY.
