    Smile Old Claw Foottub

    I have inheritied a claw foot tub and am now in the process of re-doing my bathroom with it. I have taken a bunch of coats of old paint, etc off the OUTSIDE of the tub and it is now looking very nice (the inside is fine).

    I would like to seal the outside of the tub with something clear and protective.

    Looking for suggestions you may have to that end. I've gotten a lot of different answers, suggestions etc. I don't WANT to use a color, just something clear. Any suggestions?

    You might take it to someplace like an auto refinisher and have them put a clear-coat on it. SHould be fairly tough, look good, and last a long time as it's designed for temperature changes, and moisture. Some of those are REALLY tough, and not the easiest to install without the proper equipment.
