Seal and protect?

Post  Deadly_Jester on Tue May 03, 2016 4:51 pm

I have a large FW model i need to seal and protect. Its airbrushed, so the paint rubs off very easily. I bought some vallejo gloss and matt varnish that i could try to apply with my airbrush, or should i play it safe and get a can of testors dullcote? I would like to try the vallejo, but this is a pricey FW model, so if there is any chance of error im out.

Anyone have experience and/or suggestions?

I`ve always used GW purity seal, which does the job for me. Spray fixatives are a testy bunch tho, you need to have basically no humidity and a cool area to spray, and not a very light hand.

Always gives me the willies every time I spray, ive had fully painted models totally nuked by coats before...

I`m sure that helps :p

i've used vallejo matte varnish, but only on a brush, never airbrushed. it does a nice job though.

Oh yes, you sure know how to inspire confidence Smile



Thanks for the brush on tip. On a project with less large flat surfaces I might try brushing it on, but I'm certain it will leave brush strokes on something like this.
