This is what I always dread with the dip. The figures turned out HIGHLY glossy. I painted them with a clear flat acrylic, waited for them to dry, and sprayed them with rattle-can Dullcote. This is the result.
I know a lot of people like that shiny toy soldier look, but it's not for me.
Next I tried spraying Winsor & Newtown flat lacquer. The result was no better.
I have quite an arsenal of clear sealants. I worked my way through them. Nothing was cutting that sheen.
I finally had to try out the Testor's Dullcote in the bottle. I mixed it with lacquer thinner, donned my hazmat breather, and gave a small group of figures a spray. Disaster ensued.
I hope I can get rid of this frosting. If I cannot, I will have to strip the figures and start again.
