stormbreach Posted March 11, 2021 Share Posted March 11, 2021 Hello friends. I had a question about spray varnish. All of my painted minis currently reside in my glass display case but unfortunately this gets direct sun for a period of time every day. I want to seal the minis to protect them from the sun as much as possible. I know Citadel gloss sealer protects from UV but my FLGS doesn't have any and honestly I am wondering if there is anything cheaper. I have a mix of materials for my minis, including metal (including actual lead lol), Bones plastic and GW plastic Warhammer mins. I know gloss protects from chips and matte kills shine but I was wondering about UV protection. Does Testors Dullcote help with UV because I can't seem to find that information anywhere. I would honestly be okay with just dusting everything with Dullcote because I already have it and the only minis that will ever see use would be the GW minis. Another important question on my mind is how does gloss from a brand like Krylon do on Bones? I have used Krylon primer on Bones and it didn't go well but I wonder if anyone has used it on a finished Bones because it should be okay on top of the acrylic paint instead of directly on the Bones material... right? It's the "should be" that worries me lol. Any thoughts anyone has would be helpful, direct experience would be perfect. Thanks a bunch everyone, whenever I google sealers and UV they tend to be articles about whether the sealer turns yellow when exposed to UV so it's not helping me.
