Oil based white house-paint from the hardware store is great for sealing
plaster- don't use latex paint.
1st step: Strain paint with pantyhose to get rid of any debris & to insure a
slick glass-like finish.
2nd step: Make sure you apply in thin coats, use 2 coats. Dry thoroughly in
between coats. Good Luck!
