Default Plastikote

Hi everyone, I am trying to purchase plastikote, I have looked online and went into several shops to no avail. I know it is the clear fast dry enamel that is water based but I can't seem to source anywhere. Can some of you recommend one, where to purchase and the price? Thanks so much

You can purchase it on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Painting-...ote+b11+bottle
I believe the link I posted is for the U.K. Amazon, not sure though since I'm from US .
If you scroll down the page a little, in the "Customers who bought this also bought" thing you can find other colors like blue and such.

B & M is the cheapest place to get it! £2.99 for any colour including clear.. compared to £4/5 for colours and £6+ for clear online.

Thanks for replies! I did have a look in bnm and they didn't seem to have. I also checked online too and couldn't see. Yes clear is expensive compared to the other colours must be more popular! Will have a look online at that link JL Praire.

www.toolbank.com | Fast Dry Enamel Aerosol Clear 100ml

Would this one be ok? It is not water based though. Very hard to find water based!

Aerosol products are never safe.If you can't(or are unwilling to due to price reasons)get water based non-aerosol then I would just not use any product.

That one isn't safe as far as I know.
Can you get the water based one on amazon? They do sell it but the price/delivery go up & down so sometimes it can be a silly price.
I get mine here although they seem to be out of the clear at the moment they do have some of the coloured water based ones.

Yes that's what I thought just checking. I ended up coming across the enamel clear water based one and bought it, it was 6.75 which I guess is ok to get the right one. How long does a pot last? Does it do quite a lot? Thanks for help

One pot does do a fair bit, most things need two coats really but it's important to only paint it on really thinly or it doesn't dry properly.
