Any film finish will work, but I love the sealcoat shellac for that. Make sure it is well covered, however. When done right, the top paint should wipe right off without staining the wood itself. It’s like using a glaze on wood in that regard.

Be careful with oil-based poly. It will tint the birch quite a bit and might not be what you want.
