callin on you folks who finish things

I have these wonderful slabs of dogwood, but i want to use some in outdoor benches. Is there anything i can use (indoors or out) that will keep the nice pink without neutralizing it or darkening the whole piece?

I contemplated epoxy; i have used the slow-cure on some small pieces and can reach all the areas with a brush, but i fear the shine, as Delta pointed out. I guess i need to break down and leave something on it.
