Hi

 

I have noticed that the ID Backscene I have is easily blemish with water and/or slight abrasion when damp. Any ideas on protecting this against? Dullcote? Matt lacquer?

 

Many thanks

I did a small experiment with Halfords Matt Lacquer and it did provide protection against a 'wet finger swipe' after only one coat. I'm surprised no one has found this an issue this as a backscene blemish is easily noticed.

I guess too late as you've mounted it but I thought they offered the option of printing on waterproof paper, their "premium" range https://www.art-printers.com/

 

That's something I wish I'd considered. Along with the blemishing you may also find that in an environment where the humidity/temperature greatly varies, an outside shed, the normal ones bubble over time.

Thanks, I have had a look and can see that the premium range might be better. I have managed to seal it with Halfords Matt Lacquer. What to do spend more money. I am not keen on self-adhesive/non-aqueous glues so I might go ahead with the current standard grade and coat it. Not really impressed with this product, it should be water-fast whatever the grade! :mellow:
