What are you trying to paint? You could consider a two part epoxy paint.

You could also consider clear enamel or a lacquer as it will not yellow things. I do not know of a place around here to get them though. Possibly the paint store across from Javier's in Melaque. They sell a poly but it yellows things. Expensive too. They also have the two part epoxy.

A water based poly will not yellow but it does nto bring out the wood grain, it has a plastic look to it.

There is no place around here that sells a non yellowing varnish or poly that i know of.

If you go to Shermin Williams in Manzanillo you should be able to find M.L. Campbell clear coat or maybe a water based ploly as they will not yellow things.
