Cool, what techniques did you use?

Just played with the AK interactive enamel wash.  I wanted to see what all it would work on and how it would look.  I'm using it on my Mig right now and I'm really liking it.  Combined with black-basing and possibly salt weathering I think it'll really pop.

Ernie, I have used both Testors Dullcoat and Vallejo semi or matte varnish, both worked well with enamels and oils, but I think the dull coat soaks up a little enamel (or oil), so you can’t undo something completely. I have also used oils directly on acrylic paint, but that’s risky, as there is no do-over.

I used Gunze gloss for my Mig.  I could wipe it off without issues and not needing to use anything to help.  On the Spitfire I used it directly over the paint, no gloss coat.  I used mineral spirits to help remove it off that.  It did leave light staining in places but that was actually what I was looking for.  Moving ahead I'll do it over my gloss coat prior to final full coat going down.
