Things about dipped models is that they normally looked dipped. The varnish tends to pool in areas that would not normally expect to be in shadows, and the thickness of the medium does lead to detail being obscured.
I don't have anything against somebody who wants to dip their models, I just see it as a quick way to something you don't enjoy. I have never seen such a large figure done using this technique and it looks very shiny right now. Is it going to be sprayed with a matt varnish to take the edge off the gloss look?
Dipping does tends to be a very decisive method amongst painters in my experience, people either love it or hate it. For people who are not really into painting models its just another tool to get figures on the table to look 'ok'.
Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.
