Vallejo Matt Acrylic Varnish


Recommended Posts

Hi, has anyone used this product before?  I've been using the Tamiya matt finishes but they are getting expensive.  Would this make a good substitute over Tamiya Acrylic paints?

If no one provides any feedback about that Vallejo, I use the AK Interactive matte varnish with great success. With the big bottle you get more liquid per price than Tamiya, at least here in the US. No need to thin, right into airbrush, and spray. If no airbrush I've hand brushed very small areas which worked out  as well, but haven't attempted this with any large or flat areas. 

 

They have a matte and an ultra matte. I didn't really like their semi-gloss though.

I use Vallejo polyurethane varnishes (26.650, 26.651, 26.652) right now mainly because I have them on hand.  Like the polyurethane primers, they are temperamental to say the least.  However, given proper application (multiple light coats) and enough curing time (about 3 - 4 days) they have proven to be resilient during the decal and weathering stages.

I used this finish on the F-104G, went on really well, plus it was watered down by 50%, will work out a lot cheaper than the Tamiya TS-80.

Glad to hear!  Once I run out of the polyurethane stuff I will give the Vallejo acrylic varnish a try.
