Folks,

Not Dull Coat, but MM Clear Flat Lacquer in the black jar with red stripe on the upper portion of the label. How much do you thin this with lacquer thinner? Is it 50:50, or more paint than thinner? I am looking for a pretty flat finish.

TIA

Brad

I do 50/50. It's been working for me for years. n/t

I use Mr Leveling Thinner which has a retarder to help the paint flow (level out). It works a treat.

Do you lay it on wet or mist it on in a few coats?

Thanks again

But I prefer the Alclad clear flat now. Or Dullcote to be honest.
