Varnish question again

Folks, I've had a few more enquiries about the vexed question of getting a fully matt finish to figures. This is the tecnique I use and it's always produced excellent results. I always gloss varnish first for protection to the figures then matt varnish and I always use a brush for figures. Gloss is standard Humbrol 35 Gloss poly and the matt is Daler-Rowney Soluble Varnish Matt.
Give the figure a coat of Humbrol 35, let it dry for a full 24hrs.
Make sure that the Daler-Rowney is well shaken and stirred and apply to the figure, multiple thin coats are better than 1 thick one ! Dougie
