OK Guys (and Gals...there are a few female tread-heads out there)!
We'll assume you use either an acrylic or enamel undercoating...preshade or not....after a primer coat.
What order do you use when you apply final finishing and weathering to your models? Is it...
A)Primer, Paint and Shade, Filters or Washes THEN a gloss coat for decals (or a cover coat for dry transfers), then finish with pastels/pigments, dusting, etc...
B)Primer, Paint and Shade, Filters and washes, and pigments/pastels...THEN gloss or clear for markings, and a finish coat of dusting/pigments
C) Some other incomprehensible, yet totally fantastic combination that works well for you?
Please use specifics if A or B don't fully describe your techniques...or if C is you're "final answer."
Thanks...the results should be most intersting, don't you think? Responses
