Hi all, Rather than experimenting wildly I thought I would ask for the expertise of the forumgoers on this matter... if I paint an area of a mini with a metallic color and then apply a matte coat, will the result still look metallic at all or will it be dulled down completely so I should apply a gloss coat (on that area if nothing else)? I ask because for some of my minis I would like to have both matte and glossy parts, and I have never used sealant coats (yet) so I am unsure what the results will be - everything I've read about applying coats has assumed normal paints, not metallic ones, but the metallic paints are perfect for the effect I want. Thank you in advance for any wisdom you can share :)
