different types of finishes

so, i saw donna's final deck the other day. she used Plaid - Royal coat decoupage hi-gloss finish. She told us that she sprayed several coats (i don't recall how many though) but her deck looks like there is an epoxy poured or some sort of heavy glaze/varnish on it.

on the other hand, Aaron was looking for some sort of finish and decided to use Krylon Crystal Clear acrylic spray. his deck was completely matte finish first... he put 2 coats and it has a nice sheen to it.

anyway, i was trying to take a picture of them together for comparison... but it didn't come out exactly the way i thought it would.

fyi, you will be able to find the krylon spray at any craft store (pat catan's, joanne fabrics, michaels, etc.)... however, this decoupage spray is hard to find. it looks like michael's is the only place you can buy that. if you're planning to buy the spray, i'd recommend calling the store first.
