First engrave on leather

Westie measures 3 1/4 wide x 4 1/4 height. I engraved this clip art onto the sample leather sent with my machine. Machine did a phenomenal job exactly like the clip art, What is the best way to protect the engraving from wear and tear?

I use a light color dye (saddle tan, etc) and then finish with Feibing’s Resolene. You could use Resolene without dying.

Thank you so very much

Wow, you first leather engrave turned out so great! I am going to move your question to the Beyond the Manual section to see if the Community has any suggestions for best product for protecting the leather.
