    Has anybody used a product called Nyalic in place of traditional varnish?

    Never heard of it before, it's seems quite expensive at 30$/12oz.
    Is 12oz approx 360g?

    12 ounces is 340 grams by weight. In this context the 12 ounce quantity is probably fluid ounces which is a volume dimension.
    That would be 355 ml. And yes that is absurdly expensive.

    I have not used the mentioned product but I have used two part urethane clear automotive paint. It costs much less but must be sprayed, not rolled or brushed.
