While I have searched for, and made-do with, other varnishes over the last few months, my heart was always yearning for Testors Dullcote.
Despite using it on over 100 figures, Testors has never fogged on me. It has never become too glossy. I seem to get the same even finish every time.
But it's more than that, there is something about it that actually seems to enhance my paint jobs. It seems to just slightly increase the contrast between layers...
Maybe it is all in my head, but I was extremely disappointed when my last can ran out, and I discovered there wasn't any to be obtained in the UK.
Thankfully, the ship has docked! And it seems to be available from numerous dealers. Not wanting to be caught off guard again, I went ahead and ordered a year's supply (at least). I got mine from NG Trains. Now I just need to find a cool try place to store them.
It is a happy day!
