Cleaning out, I found this little sculpt I made a while ago. So I experimented with Annie Sloan Paste Wax as a finish on the head (which is paperclay painted with acrylics). The paste wax gave it a sheen without it being too over the top shiny varnished. I'm glad to discover this and might use it on some future dolls. It does give the feeling of a wax over papier mache a bit. We don't even want to TALK about how many creatures I have in my work area that need arms and legs.
