Bil – I called Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams tech departments
about this very subject just last week. both companies do NOT recommend
using just the untinted paint for any projects. plus, both of them said
they do not have any feedback of anyone using the untinted paint for a clear coat.
they highly recommended a good quality Spar Varnish with UV inhibitors for the clear.
I have been using both brands of paints for many, many years and was very
skeptical (and still am) about using untinted paint as a clear coat for anything.
thank you for your time and effort in the test.

and for those that have claimed “positive results”, they have yet to post any photos
or provided any documentation between “day one” and “two years later”.
