Hi Folks, after some advice. I've just bought a load of tufts to improve the look of some buildings I've been working on and just wondered what people do regarding applying the tufts and sealing the piece.

Apply tufts then hit with sealant or seal and then add tufts?

Seal then tufts.

Definitely seal then tufts. I have ended up with frosted tufts if I did it in reverse.

Agreed, seal then tufts. Same for basing figures.
