Hi all Iam thinking of trying some effects with hairspray and wondering if anyone has used vallajo satin varnish
to seal the paint before the hairspay effect and how well the vallajo varnish stood up or can anyone recomend another varnish
Hi mate. I've used it thinned with IPA successfully (my Gekko and 72nd StuG among others) and it worked fine. I don't really like thinning it with tap water, it doesn't seem to spray as well. I have used Mr Hobby thinner but it ended up a bit stubborn and didn't chip easily.
I always use Vallejo matt varnish and again, have had it work well. I must try and get some of the satin varnish, it would probably help with the weathering later on.
If you've been struggling with Humbrol varnish for years, like me, then the Vallejo varnishes are a revelation. I recently did a hairspray job and believing that Vallejo was invincible i sprayed the hairspray on it after only 15 mins of drying time. This caused a bit of frosting on the model, so in future i would give it a few hours to dry thoroughly.
