    Matte varnish?

    Hi guys,

    I just painted a really nice mini that I'd love to use on the tabletop, but I'm afraid the paint will chip ( it has some already after my friend dropped it :realmad: ). Is there some kind of matte varnish available that will protect the paint? I know about Citadel's gloss varnish, but I don't want my guy to get all shiny . Please, only post about products that you've used yourself, so that I won't ruin my models.

    You can coat it first with the gloss varnish (this will give it a tougher coat) and then spray it with a flat varnish to get rid of the shine. If you are in the states I recommend you use Testor's Dullcote. It works great.

    I use citadel's matte varnish on all my stuff. On displays tuff, or my characters I spay a Windsor & Newton matt and then after a day or two of drying, I spray it with citadel matte. Just don't overdo it, otherwise all your hard work will go down the crapper. light coates.. wax on... wax off, daniel san.
    What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
