Cheers everyone,

I just primed my two green containers. My first ever airbrush project!  White paint tomorrow. Then decals when the packet comes in the mail. Airbrushing was much more intuitive and fun than I expected. I'm looking forward to learning how to really use this thing! 

 

The picture makes it look overpainted. It's not. If anything it's underdone, but based on what my YouTube videos tell me, that should be right for a priming layer. 

 

Question: Can someone tell me what "clear coat" is? When you you apply it? Where do you get it?

 

I can't wait for the real wagon to arrive!!

Clear coat is basically a clear varnish that you paint over the transfers with to protect them.👍😀

It should be available alongsidethe modelling paints.

So you don’t use it on everything you paint? Just over decals?

I guess you could use it as a protective coat on anything you paint but it’s basically a clear varnish.The modelling paints do nt really need a protective covering but the decals will just to stop them getting rubbed off when handling the car.👍😀

Clear coat also smooths the surface before you add decals, ideally you should clear coat first and then either matte or clear coat after to get the desired finish.  Clear coating before ensures minimal tiny airbubbles trapped under the surface (which is responsible for the "silvery" look poorly applied decals sometimes get).  The coat after applying decals protects the artwork, as well as ensuring the car is evenly shiny or dull as desired.

Matt ?

or 

 

Satin?

Matt gives a flat finish,satin gives a slightly shiny finish and gloss gives a shiny finish.Matt would probably be best for this task.

I guess the containers are essentially matt. Locos are more satin though, right?
