Default Varathane in small containers?

Greetings,

I've checked the local big box hardware stores (Lowe's, Home Depot) and
I've only been able to find Varathane Diamond Floor Finish in gallon
cans. I do not need *that* much. Is it available for sale in smaller
containers? Could anyone recommend a reliable online supplier?

Does it keep well, then? My Sculpey glaze completely solidified while
I was studying abroad for a semester.

Oh, yeah, it keeps fine if you seal up the container well. Most people
(including me) decant a small amount
into a jar that is easier to open and close. ANd periodically dilute it with
water so that it is the consistency of whole milk, or a little thicker. I
think Sarajane Helm's site has a lot of information about it, as well as
www.glassattic.com

I found a small container in the hardware section at Target.
