Ok I think I need remedial modelling class 101, I spray painted my abrams in dessert sand acrylic. decals applied, and was putting a wash through the area (which was looking really good) until the paint started to lift a little. Was I suppose to put a seal of matt varnish on this or something???? Totally bewildered and banging my head against wall. please advise asap. Thanks in advance
