Ok, maybe today’s update isn’t as hot as I made it sound in the last post but nevertheless it is an important one. I applied Vallejo Satin Varnish (70522), slightly diluted with Vallejo Airbrush Thinner (71161), over the models. I’ve heard a recommendation of a 7:2 mix but honestly I didn’t bother too much with exact numbers here. Simply put some varnish medium into the cup of the airbrush and drip a little thinner into it. Shake it a bit and spray it over the area you wish to varnish. It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that, really. This step of the project will need to dry overnight since varnish doesn’t dry as fast as acrylic paints.
The next step will be to use a wash on the models and the applied varnish helps out with that, making it flow nicely.
