    Default How to seal over oils?

    Hello. Relative noob here. Got into mini painting not too long ago, and am enjoying it so far (mostly 15mm FOW type stuff). However, I am running into a bit of a snag, for which I haven't found an answer yet: Can anyone tell me how to do a matte final seal over a layer of oil? I find that Testors Dullcote will eat away the oil layer and ruin any subtle weathering effects.

    My process is:
    1. Prime
    2. Acrylic base coat
    3. Acrylic details
    4. Gloss coat (Pledge floor gloss)
    5. Oil weathering
    6. Final matte coat. (Dullcote)

    Any assistance greatly appreciated.

    Testors Dullcote is thinner based, that's why it eats away the oil.

    Use a simple Acryl varnish. After it protects the surface you can hit it with dullcote if you need to (or some ultramatt acryl varnish).

    Personally first I'd wait a few days to let the oil cure totally before using any varnish on it. Not necessary for a thin oil weathering, but a drying paint under the varnish could lead to some tear in theory.

    your process would be:
    1. Prime
    2. Acrylic base coat
    3. Acrylic details
    4. Gloss coat (Pledge floor gloss)
    5. Oil weathering
    (5.5 some wait to let the paints cure a bit)
    6. Acryl varnish (matt or gloss)
    7. Final matte coat. (Dullcote or other)
    Forgot, that it works again.

    I have white people textured hair, the strands themselves are fairly thin. I was thinking maybe mineral oil is too heavy of an oil? But I don't wanna run out and keep buying stuff to see what works so I thought I'd check here if anyone with similar texture has been down this path.
