'Liquid Poly (similar finish to acetone - less toxic!)

Humbrol 'Liquid Poly - paint it onto your (ABS) printed model. £4.50 for a 28ml bottle.

Melts the top layer of the plastic, can be applied using a paintbrush, which is a nicer process than the acetone steaming.

Creates a smooth shiny/polish finish. See pics below, after painting, and surface before painting. Also if you want the model you can download it here - http://www.myminifactory.com/object/view/491/Fuming-Buddha
