Does Testors Dullcote work as a fixative on home-printed paper flags/banners?

I've had it smear the print
Soy ink doesn't like it

I use it for that as well as a final fix on my flock.

I spray all my minis with it. I've not had issues with 6, 10, 15 or 20mm paper flags. But I may just be lucky….

I think it depends on what you're using to print. Inkjet printers might have a problem whereas laser printers using toner seem to be much more resilient to dullcote.

Never had an issue with Dullcote on flags, figures or flock.
That's why I continue using it.

Yes you can. Spray it into the cap then use a brush to apply. I've seen it done on small paper decals for larger flags YMMV.

I've never had a problem with bleeding when applying to paper or cardstock.
