I'm currently working on a leman russ tank that I've airbrushed the base color and camo lines for, and to seal the paint on I used some matte varnish. Turns out its a bit shiny.. does anyone have a good method for keeping airbrush paint on?

I use the same method for airbrushed paints that I use for hand brushed paints, which is testors dull coat. This gives a great flat finish, although it does not give as much protection as a gloss varnish.

I also use Dull Cote; no gloss at all.

If you want better protection - it is not bad as is - it is just as matt over a layer of other tougher varnish.

For protection, I used to use Gloss cote, let it dry thouroughly and then dullcote it.

I couldn't get dullcote for a few years though and my airbrush is currently packed away until we get a sparky to hook up some external power outlets (and add the circuit) to the box (house is too small to airbrush inside, so I have to do any spraying outside.).

The spraybooth is almost set up though. It's waiting on the same power setup to run the extractor fan (65,000cfu pickup).
