Yeah great stuff Jon. Loved it the first time you showed us this and tis still inspiring. I havent used this particular type of brass but another tip is to anneal it, which will soften it and make any bending easier. Probably over kill for very thin branches and vines tho .... Smile

A good tip for the thicker stuff like the oak type I reckon. Wink

That`s the great things about cracking forums like this though, you pick up advice and tips from the lads and have a go, keep going at it and your kit starts to look better and better.

It`s about enjoying what you do and being happy with what you achieve I think. I love looking at how the other bloke goes about the hobby.

I agree with Janick, sure does improve the look of any piece, and for those of us who cant paint vehicles such as me then this is the sort of thing that makes we want to do vehicles again (already started my Nashorn)

Can cover up all the bodge marks with great looking foilage

Not onlt thick but confused as well - I though it was as upplier for the etch, not for the laquer

Its great stuff - I followed TSMs recommendation and bought some to enhance my bits.

Something about Panthers and branches!



It does work a treat - you don't get much but it does go an awful long way and 'less is more' as they say.

Highly recommended.

Thanks John

Cheers lads.
The matt varnish (laquer) is 100% flat matt, the best I`ve ever used.

But be aware that it'll 'kill' any metallic paint completely - leaves you with no 'lustre' at all. Best to apply metallics after Dull Cote.

Quote:
The more serious issue is that unless you varnish a figure first (any varnish but gloss is best) it will trip acrylic paint straight off.

I've never had that problem - and I often use it straight over acrylics - but I do let my acrylics dry for a day or two before varnishing.
