Question about sealing your figs

Posted in Custom Workstation

I usually use an acrylic wax kind of sealant. This leaves my figs with a finish that is pretty glossy. I like how well it applies and everything, but I don't care for the shininess. Is there a similar sealant that can be brushed on like this that leaves a matte or at the least a semi-gloss finish?

Me too puns, and sometimes dullcote, but anything from a can will never cure properly on softer rubber like capes.

I use Vallejo Matte Varnish... specially designed for plastic miniatures, so it works great for customs.

best way is always going with light think coats, and yep like what TMB said, Testors Dull Cote is one of the best!

I used some Matte varnish stuff to make my Savage dragon look better. But it makes him look kind of manky... it comes up in lumps... is there a special way to apply it?

What if I scraped it off and just sprayed him with Sealant? Would that dullen the shine? How do I tint him slightly yellow...
