I make chopsticks out of walnut, cherry and maple and then paint the tops of them with acrylic paint and sometimes copper leafing.
I’m looking for a very durable finish to protect them against paint coming off/leaf tarnish and overall scratching. (Care instructions advise against abrasive scrubbing, submerging in water for long periods and washing in dishwasher).
Currently I am using three coats of Varathane Interior No-Odor Water-Based in satin.
Is this the best finish for my chopsticks? Any suggestions on something better-suited? Anything stronger or more flexible?
