I have read that applying two gloss coats will seal the paint in better, and then applying one dull coat to give the miniature the flat look. I have used Testors Dullcote exclusively, however by adding the two gloss coats (also Testors) before the final dull coat, will give the paint job a longer life.

Has anyone done this before, and if so, what were the results?

I have never tried it before, but three layers sounds like a detail-erasing nightmare.

I will have to try it out for myself, on a simple Marine. Maybe just one thin coat of gloss should work, just enough to seal the paint in.

I use it all the time, heck even one coat of polyurethane and one coat of dullcote works. It protects it quite well, although i dont think anything can stop the pointy edges on trophy racks from being worn away :( .
