Since you asked... Adding a little brush on sealer to white and light flesh tones helps keep them smooth when layering, they tend to get lumpy or chalky otherwise. Nice work on the robes and the basing!

... that might be something for me to do on my skin tones. Graininess is the bane of my figure-faces. What makes the sealer do that to the paint?

What do you mean by sealer? Varnish?

Whats the difference between the brush on sealer and like a gloss, matte, or satin finish?

 

 

The Sealer is a Matt finish.

There is also a Gloss Varnish in Reaper's arsenal.

 

I use spray sealers ( Amry painter Anti shine) too, but under certain circumstances ( cold, rainy) it can give a bad effect.

 

I use the brush on sealer a lot, also during paint jobs on larger models.

So I can handle a mini without rubbing paint off.

I haven't sealed or 'finished' any of my models because in all the videos I've watched the varnishes seem to detract. The I don't like the gloss look and the matte looks chalky. Is there a way to seal them without really changing how they look?

I use Testors DullCote on all my figures, and with very few exceptions, (some GW) I have never noticed a color change...

YMMV...

 

Nice work on this!
