  1. OK. Good stuff here, folks. Thank you all very much.


    In regards to what brands I have used and been unhappy with: I've used Krylon matte finish much to my displeasure. In fact, I found it gave a pretty high sheen to my mini moreso than the Liquitex matte varnish I've since settled on. There was another can of some strange brand that I've since thrown out in rage. Can't recall what it was. And there may have been another. At any rate, the Liquitex varnish has been in use for the past few minis. I'll have to look into all these other products that everyone has recommended.


    Thanks so much for the info, gang. :)   And by all means, should anyone think of anything else, please let me know. I'm always open to suggestions.

  2. What brands? I wish I could remember (shhh--I'm at w-o-r-k right now...) I'll have to check when I get home and let you know.


    I knew better than to post this without listing the brands I'm unhappy with, but just couldn't wait.... No patience, but I am part of the fast-food generation, after all.

  3. Greetings, all.


    New member. Glad to be here. So far, very much thrilled by this forum.  :D  :D  :D


    While I'm still poking about and getting the lay of the land, I thought I'd ask one of the most pressing questions on my mind of late as I haven't had much luck with the search engine.


    What do people use for a *flat* matte finish? I just recently took up miniature painting again after a several year hiatus and I haven't been able to find the sealer I used to use (don't even remember the name of it). As such, I've been trying out different products and have been *much* displeased with the results of the so-called "matte" finishes. Each seems to have a bit of a gloss to it, more like a satin than a true flat matte. Thus, I'm hoping someone here can point me in the direction of a good *FLAT* matte finish, spray or varnish.


    Specifically, I'm curious about Winsor Newton's spray matte finish. I have yet to try it, but after three strike outs to date, I'm a bit loathe to pay $10 for a can of spray that may or may not give me the effect I desire.  :(
