Thanks

I've found it best to seal with the same product that you're going to gloss with, for compatibility issues. Read the contents of the cans and go from there. Last one I did I sealed with automotive urethane clear, sealed to set colors in middle of paint job (before markings) and then glossed with same product. Try the automotive clears, I'll bet you're eventually going to end up using them down the road. Spray with a detail gun and use a respirator. Clean up with enamel reducer.
I've had paint jobs "checker" because of non-compatible products, ouch! Hope this helps........John

Shellac is a sealer, you can seal with shellac, and once it is dry spray lacquer over it, or water based or any of the auto semi urethane's! Then you can come back and spray additional colors over that.

I have been painting cars for over 10 years and would never think of using clear as a sealer.  Clear is a top coat.  Sounds risky to me and might bubble in time.

Sometimes I use 4 to 1 auto clear coat as a sealer. I haven't had any issues with it.

I have used Bullseye Shellac and found that the paint cracks
Go with the same sealer as gloss.

Did you ever see a car with the paint peeling off and where it came off is still glossy looking?  That's because someone painted over the clear without scuffing it first. The paint had nothing to adhere too.  However I don't know if a fish would have the same reaction as quick or not due to it not being exposed to direct sun light.  "I personally" would not take that risk. 

Some clears do have a time frame that they can be recoated before they seal over.

SInce 1977 I have not had any fish sealed with shellac then painted crack.    Kilz used in homes to seal under water based, oil based and tons of other types of paints is shellac.

My bet if you have paint cracking, the fish was not dry!
