i found some caracteristics:

Pumps ( for applying ) must be compatible with solvent in coating. Xylene for bottom coat and Acetone for top coat.

i dont know if resins have these type of solvents or are complatibles ...

I guess it could block light(and probably diffuse it) as it is not fully transparent when dry :/

I've used it, it's also available in aerosol as "never wet". Doesn't dry clear, kind of cloudy. Also tends wear away fairly quick. Fun to play with but a bit toxic
