Gloss coat/ dull coat

Recommended Posts

For sealing of minis I will first start with a solid glosscote using Future acrylic floor finish. This is a durable, water thin clearcoat that goes on smoothly and dries very glossy. I shoot it out of my airbrush but check the hobby stores for inexpensive (albiet more crude) spray devices.

Has anyone tried brushing on Future floor finish?  Results?

Ditto on the Krylon Matte Finish spray...Dries super quick and never gobby or uneven...

I've brushed on Future with fine results. It might require an extra coat (depending on how "glossy" you want it) but it works fine. A shot of brushed on future saved the decals on a model of mine when they silvered badly on top of a future coat (model was from Russia and they sometimes skimp on the decals...)!

Somewhere, someone posted that they do two coats of glosscoat spray, then one coat of matte.  It's nice, thick, and when your model gets glossy again, that's when you need to respray the matte.

 

I've never done this, but it seems like a good idea.
