Hi there, I'm hoping someone can advise regarding the options available to me for an acrylic, water-based gloss clear coat. I have watched countless YouTube videos of people using various clear gloss coats including Future (I'm UK based so no idea what the equivalent is). Is there a water-based (and cleaned with water) gloss clear coat available? I tried the Humbrol Clear Gloss over Revell Aqua Matt Black as a test. The Black was dry at least 24 hours before I applied the Clear. The result was disappointing - satin at best and patchy dull in others. Definitely not gloss as I wanted
I started this Porsche 911 GT-1 10 years ago; had a few problems with the build so it got shelved. Along came lockdown and I blew off the dust a decided to use the model for some experiments I typically build 1/48 Aircraft and 1/12 motorcycles so not really a car buff. I spray all my models with Tamiya TS paints and use the Tamiya TS- 13 clear with very few problems its my favourite clear coat. I do have the Zero 2K clear but I don't use it as the risk to family health and my airbrush is too great. Though I always use a spray booth I find that the Zero clears are just too much of a hazard
So I have a question about mr color paints. Specifically Super clear iii, semi gloss and Matt varnishes. Are they acrylic paints, enamel paints or other like lacquer based (because they sure do stink!) - Can I paint them over say tamiya acrylic or a metallic enamel, or just the tamiya (which I have done). Secondly what can I paint over them once dry - would I need enamel or acrylic washes, because I have seen washes with x-20 enamel thinners used on top of the mr color varnish, as well as AK washes. Cheers
