Matte finish 2 Years, 8 Months ago  
Just curious what matte finish people are using. I just started using army painter anti shine matte finish and am completely upset with what it has done to a few of the minis I've used it on. Most turn out ok but it is not consistent at all. Results range from pretty good to white and flaky especially on smooth surfaces. I'm just looking for a product that is easier to get good results with. Price is not an issue. Any advice?

I use MicroFlat. Got it at the hobby shop for a couple bucks for a small bottle. Goes on cloudy white but dries clear. I actually put it over a satin sealer I bought at michael's to protect my paintjob. That sealer works fine but too glossy for my taste. The microflat helps fix that.

I'm thinking about trying the brush on version of testors dullcoat. Does anyone have experience with it?

I use spray on testors dullcoate and have never had a problem. Just remember to keep the can at comfortable room temperature, shake it really well and don't use a can that has been "opened" for more than 6 months. Also don't spray in damp conditions - a bright sunny day with little wind is perfect.
When you spray keep at least 12" away.

If you follow these rules you won't have a problem using spray on varnish. It's only when you break these rules that you can get problems.

That's my experience anyway.
