"Thank you, Isabel!  The humidity finally dropped to below 50% so I'm doing a little work on the dolls and then re-applying the seal... so far so good.  I'm on my third layer.  It does preserve the work you've done that you like, while letting you add more and if you mess up and have to remove any work...  you're not starting over, just down to whatever level you lasted sealed.  

I think one of my problems was that I wasn't applying enough sealer... I did a heavier coat with the first one and it worked beautifully... and, trying to be more precise I been using lighter coats and it's not working as well.  I think we really need a good base coat of sealer, so, I'm doing several layers before I start...  and, again, I'm sealing as I go... so, I can keep adding color and get more intensity.

"Hi Tilly, I know exactly what you're going through! I'm also stuck with some un-answered questions. Let me try to help you with the little knowledge I've got from my own experience.
!) I've read that in order for watercolor pencils or pastels to adhere well you must first apply a coat of matte seal. I read you use Mr. Super Clear, which is supposed to be the best option to work with vinyl. It won't get yellowish with time or crack. Have you tried sharpening the pencils again completely so there are no remains of sealer from your last work (just guessing here, since I haven't tried using watercolor pencils.)
2) I read a tutorial from Laurie Leigh in which she mentioned that since acrylics, pastels and watercolors are easily washed off with water you can apply a coat of seal in order to protect any stage of the re-paint work, in case you make a mistake in the next stage and you need to erase it your previous work will stay intact.
