"varnish for mural"
   I need recommendations for varnishing a mural painted with latex and acrylic paint on wood panels in an outdoor/indoor space. Specifically, it is an enclosed indoor play space which is exposed on one side. It is a box with one open wall. It is not exposed to sunlight or other weather related issues except for humidity and heat. I am concerned about the contraction of the wooden panels due to heat with a hard sealer on top...I could use some experience and advice. Also, one part of the mural is on concrete. What is the appropriate varnish to use for both surfaces?
