Hi, I recently became re-acquainted with a small art project of mine I undertook for a short while when I was about 12. I decided to take up stone painting for some reason, but like most things when I was that age it was a passing fad. They've pretty much been in storage since then in my parents loft, but I recently took them out and I think they look rather fetching atop my new lavatory. I only did 5 in total as far as I can remember, the first two shown in the pics are just copied from the covers of computer games, but the other two I got a bit more creative. The 4th one I think was modeled on the planet Jupiter, which I have always been fascinated by. The 5th is safely tucked away in my storage boxes because it's shit.

Anyway, the problem I have is that with them being so old and now being constantly exposed to condensation in the air, the paint is starting to wear. I just wondered if anyone knew of something that I could use to paint over them that would preserve their look without affecting the colour?

Apparently ceramic sealer will do this, so some very helpful people on a few other forums have advised me!

By the way, not all of these stones are there for show. The Ghostbusters one actually serves a dual purpose. I had to put it there, first night I moved in I got up next morning and and found the floor completely covered in ecto-plasm.
