Well...of course you can do that...but, in general these are student grade acrylics anyway. From where I sit, I'm thinking that a sprayed finished coat of acrylic final gloss varnish will make the finished paintings look great anyway, and solve the problem at the same time. For what a better quality red might cost and in the quantity to service all the students, you'd be cheaper to go with the spray. I went thru only one full can ($4--) of spray for roughly 20 students. (best if you spray it).
