Re: decal finishing help



I have used it mainly to make plastic windows look like glass, and it makes
a better water effect than varnish.

Johnsons Klear has gone from the shelves here in the UK as it needs ammonia
solution to clean it off properly, which make a lovely whiff when used to
clean an air brush. Definitely an outdoor job.

There is a substitute that I have not tried yet, which can be cleaned up
with vinegar.

I just used Future for the first time on a few freight cars and was very
happy with the results. As Jack mentioned, it is not necessary to apply to
the entire car; I sprayed several light coats and allowed to dry overnight.
I sprayed windshield washer fluid through my air brush to clean it. When
applying the decals, I used just water to set them in place, instead of the
Micro Blue label; I blotted the excess water. I too applied Dullcote over
the model. I am very happy with the results and will use it for future

Subject: [STMFC] decal finishing help

I've not been happy with my last few decaling projects with Testor's
Glosscote. Lots of work with setting solutions and creative weathering
helped make them better but I am looking for other decal finishing
I've used Glosscote for years originally from spray cans so any thoughts
appreciated. I've heard about Future from others anything special I should
know. Spray right from bottle or dilute?
