I tried to apply Satin Varnish again today with bad results AGAIN!!.

I used Vallejo Satin varnish shaken for 3 minutes mixed with UMP thinner also tried with water. Sprayed at 15 Psi. Got a White finish. Was not impressed on my Tornado.

So I read to spray over with Klear again to get rid of the Milky look. Luckily it worked.

So back to square one I had a Brain wave . I mixed the Satin With Klear (to act as a carrier) at 1:3 highest being the Klear. I gave it a try and it worked. No cloud and a great Satin finish. I also used a hair dryer to dry the varnish instead of blowing the airbrush over it.

Maybe others can help or put up their ways to spray Matt and Satin.
