I'm a newbie at figure painting, but I'm staring to get the hang of it... sort of.

I finished some figures for my Possessed warband and my buddy told me to spray a clear coat over it. He lent me his matte and gloss sprays and recommended the gloss.

I used the matte and now I don't like the dull, dusty look I got form it.

What will happen if I spray a gloss coat over top of the matte coat?

Should I try this or just live with the finish I've got.

i heard the other way around. Glossy finish and then spray matte,

so i guess using gloss on matte could work Smile

It is certainly a nice experiment!

Probably nothing. They will shine, but I'm not sure if they lose their "dull, dusty look" you've described. But you can try, you have nothing to lose Wink

The problem you have is that you may have sprayed too much (or from too little distance) and with matte spray there is always a problem, when you do it.

I gotta go with Skavenblight on this one I don't it will do much. However, it's still worth a shot

If you have a dusty cloudy look it's because you made a mistake while varnishing. Many people screw up on their first time out with matte varnish because they're not aware of some of the difficulties with its use. You shouldn't be using matte spray when it is cold or moist out. Cold and mositure affect the way that the particles of varnish interact with the air, and will cause it to become cloudy and ruin yor paint job. Spraying the gloss varnish will only make your miniature shiny, which most people tend to think looks a bit amateur, so I would avoid it. I've heard that there are ways to correct bad matte varnish coats, try asking about it on warseer.com. Good luck!

It'd be nice if someone could find some contrasting examples of different finishes.
