anyone have any tips on how to mitigate the dulling frosty effect of purity seal for your painted pieces? it only seems to happen to every 4th miniature I paint, but it is quite annoying because I have to paint the thing all over again to get that vibrant color that I need to see in my army.
I have had this problem once or twice, I believe it depends on how much of the Purity Seal you put on the miniature.
I generally find that 4 quick sprays is plenty, Do one from the front, and two more to make a triangle shape on the models (On a human sized model), and then a VERY quick spray from the top. Since I started using this method I have not had it happen yet. Maybe a more experienced painter can give some insight.

The spray can be quite temperamental. Try:
-using it only when sunny and not humid
-further away from the models

Best way to avoid the frosty look from purity seal is to use Dullcote. It is superior in almost every way.
It sounds a bit like you might be using a too heavy coat. Remember that with a varnish you want to protect the extremities and edges of the figure- this is where the varnish will land naturally. A couple of light coats will give good protection, especially if you leave a bout half an hour between them so the first is dry.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Use sparingly, you can varnish a few times but only do a little at a time- more comes out than it looks. Also to bring the brightness back a gloss varnish will work.
Up, up and away!
