Re: Gloss coat for decalling

The simple answer is that you can do any one of the four things you've
In fact I would suggest that you try all 4 and figure out the one you
prefer the best,
For what it's worth I've really come to like the Scalecoat clear
products, both the flat and the gloss.

I'm still learning about using the airbrush to paint cars, and still
discovering the various paint manufacturers and their products. In

went on. But now I'm wanting to decal the cars, and realise I need
a glossy
surface to have the decals adhere well. (or is that right?)

I could have mixed in Floquil's gloss to the base coat but didn't
this first effort. So I'm left with spraying a clear overcoat of
gloss, and
have done enough reading to be confused. The options seem to be:
1) stick to the floquil products, and use their gloss coat....
2) use testors gloss coat
3) use some other manufacturer's gloss coat
4) use Future floor finish as a gloss coat.
Actually the Future idea kind of appeals to me from my reading about
it on
the web. But I want to have a sense of the risks andeasy of use
with other products before soing something that seems as
experimental as
using the Future.

Thanks for any comments,
