Got my first word bearer painted, i'll get a pic up when i finish it and find a suitable dull coat to take away that damn ink gloss. Anyone know if the matte finish made by Krylon is good for GW mini's?
Not sure about Krylon, but have you tried Testors dullcote? From what I have seen it is the best stuff out there, all in the matter of opinion, of course. As for Krylon, test it out on a figure, less valuable. I wouldn't want you to ruin your hard work.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
One added note about the dullcote, make sure you get the spray can of it. I've found, and heard from other people who use the brush-on variant that it can tear the paint right off your models if you're not incredibly careful. (Something about the viscosity and chemical structure of it can leave big flakes of your paint job hanging off the brush)
Testors is indeed the best matt spray out there. Its worth mail ordering if you can't get it any other way. Krylon works well, but it is a little more satin finish that Testors, especially if you put a heavy coat or multiple coats. I use Krylon when I want the finish to be a little more gloss. Sometimes I'll use krylon first, then Testors. That way I get two coats but conserve my precious Testors.
Ahhhh, good point, i should seek out the testors. Krylon leaves it just a tiny bit too shiny for my tastes, especially since all i wanted to use the ink for was that deep cirmson pigment. Might still look ok with the Krylon, as that should suck u alot of the glossyness still
