i am more of a painter than I am a player. after spending hours and hours paint my minis i feel like the oil from my hands is slowly deteriorating my paint jobs no matter how careful I am. I tried searching the forums but i don't really know how to search for this question
i have tried spraying matte clearcoat but i think it dulls the paint job. also i think dust has somehow made its way into the clearcoat (adhered to it). maybe its cause i used the cheap stuff or used too much.
whats your experienced? I play orks so its hard to concentrate on grabbing just the bases when im moving 60 boyz a turn plus the rest of the army.
Here is what I do.. I purchase Flat Matte Spray Paint fro the hardware store... I use that.. It keeps my colors looking true to form, and protects it from chipping.
The problem I have is that FLAT MATTE somehow adds shine to my minis.. As to the dust in the clear coat.. You need to rinse, and completely dry your minis before spraying them.. Keep them in a dust free environment until dry.. Both water and clear coat.
do you feel like the flat matte ruins the paint job at all? I thought that the matte i used dulled the colors a bit.
the dust problem may have been from the heat the models were subjected to. around 95 with no AC. i feel liek the clear coat became mushy and then hardened with the dust in it. the models were clean when painted.
