Matte finish in Tips & Advice: Painting Posted April 29, 2003 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. -The Whiz.
