Ladies and Gentelmen I would like you to discuss amongst yourselves your experiences with this style.
Is it a good idea to gloss your models, and then matte them?
Do you have any personal experiences?
Personaly i like this method because the matt over the gloss tones it down slighty.
I've never tried it but I hear good reports. You get the protection of gloss with the finish of matte. Furthermore, your varnish will wear off when you are handling your army. When it becomes shiny you know that the matte has worn off and is due another spray. This way you will never wear away the gloss.
The gloss provides more "protection" than the matte varnish. I personally use a combination of Krylon Crystal Clear non yellowing varnish and finish it off with Testor's dullcote - which kills the shine. The one thing to watch out for with the gloss varnish is that it tends to be thicker and can obscure details.Originally Posted by squeaks

I preferably like gloss, it tends to bring out a shine, and makes the colors brighter.
Just my style but everybody has there own point of views.
