To Varnish or Not To Varnish?

Recommended Posts

I don't remember where I saw it, but there was another thread here on the forums about some spray varnishes causing the plasticizer to leach out of the PVC through the paint. That could be your issue here.

Krylon makes a low-odor spray finish which I've used on painted Bones figures without getting any tackiness. The low odor formula leaves out some of the things that seem to interact badly with Bones.

Hi. I have painted more than 1000 bones figures. I use Army Painter undercoat (white). Then paint the mini, then seal it with a spray varnish that has no bad reaction (= your figure becomes sticcky as time passes) : Testors Dullcoat. Expansive as it's not 400 ml sprays, but the best varnish. I spray 2 coats of it and here it goes.
