I've read a few articles in several magazine (and several online articles)regarding the use of Future floor acrylic as gloss coat. So, I'm considering using Future with my acrylic paints. Has anyone used Future?
If so, do you thin it for use in an airbrush? What do you thin it with? What PSI range works best? How do you flat coat Future? What products do you use?

No need to thin Future for use in an airbrush. It will spray just fine. I've heard of some people who thin it with 91% rubbing alcohol. I've tried it, but see no benefit in doing that.
I can't quote you what PSI to set your compressor to. I don't have a gauge or a pressure regulator.
I apply the Future directly on the model after the final painting (acrylic paint, enamel, makes no difference). Let it dry for at least 12 hours. Some have said to wait 24, but I found that 12 hours is sufficient. ONce the Future is dry, then you can apply the decals. Once the decals are dry and set, overspray the decals with Future once again to seal them. Once that coat of Future is dry, then apply your washes.
To flat coat the Future, I use Testors Acryl Flat Coat. Works great.
Any questions, feel free to email me.
