Varnish

Post by agg » Thu Apr 19, 2007 8:49 pm

So ive used inteiror varnish(brush on) for painted surfaces on canvas and such but i was wondering for on vinyl customs.

Because i know i have a few little customs sitting around i wouldnt mind if this stuff ruined but i was wondering if anyone has done so before and havnt run into problems with say like you prime something(vinyl/dunny/labbit/etc), paint, then varnish for clear coat protection.(brush on type)

Thanks =]

I'm using (liquitex) matte acrylic varnish on a Qee right now.. I avoid any hard brushes for applying the varnish on customs, just to insure I don't rub off the detail work. Instead I use soft wide flat brushes.

(Rust-Oleum) Plastic primer is the first coat of paint.. I noticed no change in color or texture.

I think it looks fine no problems with it. it even works for GID.

i hope this helps

Anyone know if the liquitex matte stuff would work on Posca paint markers and Rotring drawing ink? Just finished my first Munny and want to protect it but am unsure what to use.

draw on plastic and see if the vanish holds up-- thats how I test out varnish on markers and paints. acrylic varnish doesn't mess up markers

How do you find the colour change with the matte varnish? I've been wanting to use it but it says on the bottle that it will lessen the colour intensity. Have you noticed a big difference with it?

it doesn't change the color, it changes the look of the surface, it takes away shine. I would test it out on paper or plastic first- see if you like how it looks and feels.
