Matthew varnish in a can
Posted 02 July 2012 - 08:07
I tried humbrols matt varnish in a can & it frosted instantly on the model which didn't go down to well especially after I had just spent ages weathering it although I managed to pull it back with a coat of satin varnish.
Humbrols satin varnish is brilliant in one aspect that it seals the weathering & gives me the perfect smooth finish on the bodywork the only down side being it is a satin finish which still has a little gloss in it which is not what a require.
Can anyone suggest another option besides testors dullcote spray which is like trying to acquire hens teeth which will give me a truly matt finish ??

Have you tried MicroMatt (from the same range as MicroSol and MicroSet for applying transfers)? It does leave a slight sheen, despite its name, but that may be because I am not shaking it up enough. Most importantly, it does not seem to attack any of the previous layers of paint or transfer film.

My usual supplier is out of stock but there is always ebay. Seems to be postage from the US in most cases which is a bit prohibitive but may be OK. I agree that Testors is about the best.
I want to use testors dullcote but it's impossible to find a shop selling it in the uk unless anyone knows of somewhere. ???

I gave mine a really good shake but it did frost terribly. I want to use testors dullcote but it's impossible to find a shop selling it in the uk unless anyone knows of somewhere. ???
Roxey Mouldings and EDM Models/NGtrains are the two sources of Testors Dullcote that I'm aware of. Both are mail order/exhibitions only though.
