Sorry if this has been asked before but a search of the forums showed nothing. I'm painting a P-51 using Vallejo metallics. Can I put gloss varnish over these in order to do panel line washes, weathering etc? The Vallejo website sez no because it would dull the metallic finish but if that's the case how can I put a wash on? Any tips/advice greatly appreciated.

I am in the middle of painting an engine with Vallejo model air aluminum and have given the finish an oil pin wash with no ill effect. however it seems to take a while to fully harden.

Please dont take my word for it, and try it on a bit of scrap first.
