i would recommend an artists varnish too and the spray version is perfect for even coating if applied right....i'd recommend a distance of a foot and short even bursts should do it

if you're going to use a general varnish then, id recommend using a roller with it for evenness, applying three layers in total 24 hrs apart.

as for the shineyness that would depend on the paints used...could be a sign that one pigment was over worked or can show that there was too much base oil in the tube.

there are different varieties of oilpaints and i have a selection of them and i have one or two that do that to me everytime, but a matt varnish should take that sheen out for you.
