- Problem: Shiny
- Solution: Matte Spray
So what isn't it working?
I keep a mini on the side board to paint on while paint is drying on whatever 'main' project I happen to be pursuing; in this case, the main project is finishing up the Grey Knights for the Little Tim That Could and the side project is this Rune Priest for the Client Pimp in Question.
Now, the Rune Priest was an experiment on a few levels, including a technique for speed painting and basing. I was happy enough with the results there, but I decided to work on 'glowy hands.'
"Well Brent," says I to I, "why not matte the model but varnish the glowy bits?"
(You see what I put up with?)
Thing is, I matte sprayed this miniature two or three times and it's still just as shiny as the varnish I painted on his hands!
Is there something I'm missing?
(What he means is, more than usual?)
