    Hi guys

    The topic says it all. What would be the result of such an equation? I don't have any gloss black paint at the moment and I was wondering if I would get a glossy finish if I used matte black and then added a gloss coat afterwards. Anyone knows?

    Thanks!

    You will get more of a satin finish unless you really dump the clear on.
