Coating things to put in a tank

I want to put something in my tank but I don't know what to coat it in so it won't harm my fish. I need a clear coat so I don't want it covered up. What do I use?

I have heard of people using 100% silicone or reef safe epoxy to coat ornaments. What exactly are you wanting to coat?
