Response to To be really safe

So for any spray I am restricted to the rattle-can.

I get pretty decent results cutting Model Master style acrylics with Future, applied in thin coats and gone over with 3000 and 5000 grit polishing pads. This can do a pretty good job, too, a taking down shine of a gloss coat to a nice satin finish.

I do use Tamiya flat base in Future fairly often, but it needs a bit of extra care when done by brush, because you can find sometimes little bits where it can pool, that go frosty (and of course, if you get too much of the flatting agent in, frost can appear anywhere). It is fixable, but a bother.

What I was thinking with the rattle-can was that giving a spray from directly above and a little to each side might give a more or less controlled extra flatting to areas hit by the sun.
