I think any varnish would work - just check it's compatible with the paint you use (ie. acrylic paint + acrylic varnish)

This guy has some great tips on foam armour : http://www.fullmetalsam.com/ good luck Very Happy

You should be able to find it at your local New World supermarket. It's called Kleen Floor Polish here though, same product, just different name. It does work wonders as I used it for my Cao Pi armour last year.
