Recently got back into modelling after 20 years or so.... Decided I'd do 1:700 and 1:600 ships - because why start with the 'easy' stuff when you can start with the tiny stuff eh. Anywho, tried using vallejo gloss varnish after painting but got a weird and undesired splotchy effect all over... Makes it look like it recently rained. I am using vallejo acrylic model color, and the rattle can is also vallejo acrylic. I tried brushing Humbrol Clear satin over it and the splotchiness was considerably lessened. Anyone have any ideas how I can avoid this problem in the future?
Can anyone help? I don't have an airbrush (yet) but I am getting quite good with rattle cans.
