If you want a more durable clearcoat, Krylon is probably the worst solution.

Krylon stays soft for up to a year, and is prone to chemical reactions causing wrinkles and cracks to form in the finish.

I've had success clearcoating acrylic lacquer with acrylic urethane, but this was after waiting up to a year for the acrylic lacquer to fully cure.

If you're trying to achieve a "flat" finish, you can try adding a flatening agent to the acrylic urethane clearcoat.

Good luck (and stay away from that crap in a can). :D
