plasti dip question?

i've been wondering about this plasti dip stuff so i stared looking and they should have it at a local store near me.
I noticed how theres different colors and even a clear plasti dip?
I was wondering if I could use the clear spray as a clear coat.
that way I could put black plasti dip hood stripes and then use the clear spray to make it shiny instead matte(if thats how you spell it)

Ain't nothin to it but to do it.

I'm not sure if that clear plasti dip was intended for a clear coat application. It may just be as a transparent layer of plastidip.
Like green gummy worms. Red gummy worms. Clear gummy worms. They're all gummy worms.

There isn't any clearcoat plasti dip... There is a glossifier that you spray over the matte for a couple coats and it adds a gloss to it, i wouldn't use a standard clear coat over plasti dip, it will lose its ability to peel off easily.

i've seen a few people use normal clear coat over dip to give it a shiny look and they said they could still peel it easy enough.
