Hi,

I managed to get seven more Beja varnished yesterday and experienced my very first problems with Windsor and Newton Professional Matt Varnish where some speckling had occurred. This took me by surprise as I have never had any problems with Windsor and Newton Professional Matt Varnish Spray until yesterday. The mystery was compounded by the fact that the humidity in my part of the country was quite low yesterday.

I gave the mini's another coat of Windsor and Newton Professional Matt Varnish last evening, skipping the stage where I would immediately add a brush on acrylic gloss over the speckling (much more of a problem when I was using HMG Matt varnish adopted prior to finding Windsor and Newton many years ago), I simply applied the W&N Matt varnish again and the mini's have come out well. In effect, an experiment on speed painted models so less of a 'loss' if missing the re-glossing stage was missed out and it all went pair shaped.

In the meantime, the Beja painting frenzy continues on my painting desk :)

As usual more information and 360 degree pics can be found on my blog here:

You don't happen to have any connection with Windsor and Newton Professional Matt Varnish do you? Because you managed to mention Windsor and Newton Professional Matt Varnish several times in your post. Which post was concerning Windsor and Newton Professional Matt Varnish.

Now what was that non-amateur, non-gloss, non-opaque protective coating called again?

Nope. lol

In all my experience painting I think it was the number one find for me. Ironically first discovered at Art College then forgotten about for a decade or two :)
