Epoxy resin alternatives?

Hi guys! I’ve just finished a little diy project - I’ve done some painting with acrylics on a plastic table and I want to cover it with some sort of clear top coat. The only thing I can think of is using epoxy resin but it’s quite expensive. Are there any other alternatives for resin or for covering the painting in general? Thanks in advance! :)

    Varathane makes a wide range of products for that sort of purpose, as do their competitors. Just make sure that whichever you pick is colorless, because some of them have some stain in them.

    The real resin of choice for that is polyester, also expensive and difficult to work with.
