I painted up the Blue Moon Manufacturing Box "Things That Go Bump in the Night" set, the one with the Egyptian mummy and some heroes and villians.

Excellent little vignette.

I imagine that the guy thinks he has heard something…something bad, behind him…and he is frozen, afraid to look or move.

Read your blog about problems with covering up a satin finish to make it matt. Buy a little can of Testors Dullcote. Do not accept substitutes, exactly that brand, exactly that product name. It is a bit expensive, but I guarantee you it will knock down those shiny places perfectly, and you will be pleased.

Dullcote is not just another acrylic spray, it is lacquer-based. There is nothing else on the market like it.

Your figures and paint work are just brilliant, and will still deserve that accolade after you Dullcote 'em.

Thanks, everybody, for your kind words.

@chicklewis, I've used Testors many times, but believe it or not, it's hard to find for me now. You're right, it is the best, but I've also had good luck with Krylon matte spray, too. What I was using wasn't either of those. Gotta find a new source for Testors, it's my new year's resolution!

Kelroy, it is sometimes hard for me to find as well, not because nobody carries it, but because they are often out of stock.

Therefore two or three years ago I bought a CASE of Dullcote ( 12 cans) online. I still have four cans left.

Here it is for under $4 USD per spray can, with six dollars shipping, making the ultimate price for 12 cans about $4.39 USD each.

Kelroy, i regularly find Dullcote at toy stores like Toys R Us and craft stores like Michaels and AC Moore It's in the Testors section where they keep the plastic model cars and planes and stuff. It goes for about 5 bucks a can nowadays.
I've always used it and I agree with chicklewis…accept no substitutes.

I finally got around to finding and buying a can of Testor's Dullcote. (Interesting side note: they've changed the label design, and I didn't recognize it right away; might be why I thought it wasn't available in my local area….)
