Hello

I have just painted the stonework sections on my house, and although I'm very happy with the outcome, the finish is very chalky. I really could do with some kind of sealant to paint onto the painted stone sills, as already dark dust has settled on them, and wiping them clean, just rubs dirt into the paintwork.
I've Googled, and I'm not sure of the correct product to buy, as many sealants say they are not for exterior painted surfaces.

Can anyone suggest a product please? It needs to be clear / transparent.

Thank you.

you don't want to seal the paint as the stone needs to breath, how did you prep the stone before painting ?

What paint did you use? Some lime based products are a bit chalky, which is the way they are meant to be.

?
I keyed the old paint with sandpaper, washed clean with soapy water, rinsed, applied Zinsser primer, then painted.

I only want to put something on the stone windowsill (8 inches deep) as it's covered in black dust after just two days. This chalky paint isn't going to like being washed down over and over.

This is the paint - lovely thick stuff, like painting with double cream, and great for vertical walls, but not so great on the two flat windowsills.

I may try this stuff. I would do a test patch first:
