My wife has painted a Nativity set for outside using Delta acrylic craft paint and we need to clear coat it with something so they hold up outside. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A good waterborne, like GF High Performance. Waterbornes are crystal clear making them a good choice in this case. Be aware, all outdoor clear coatings need to be repaired over time….in your case, I would imagine the set will only see a few months a year of exposure, so it should last a real long time.
