    Not sure if this is the right place, but I seriously need help...

    What combo of ingredients do I need to make Revell model paint more durable...

    I'll explain the following... I have aquired acrylic's floorpolish and when mixed with the Revel acrylic's paint it works, but it's need more coats to cover, lets say 2-3 and that takes a lot of extra time

    Now I use the Email Revell colors, this obviously doesn't work with the current floor polish but the attendee/clerk from the shop I was couldn't advise me exactly which floor polish TYPE+BRAND to use :( 

    I know you guys have already helped me out zillion times :D 
    So please answer me so I can start painting my huge @$$ Omega Supreme ;) 

    EDIT:
    Still no luck :(  I seriously need to find a good/strong "something clear" to mix with my Revell Enamel/Email paints, which can be brushed on... no one who has expirimented with this?

    Needs to be in customs section for a start... And revell paints really are garbage. I would personally swap to testors enamels. They are good. As are tamiya acrylics and citadel when used correctly.

    I'd recommend Tamiya over and above Testors and Revell.


    Never used Citadel.

    Future is available in lots of countries but the names varies from market to market.

    There was a list out there somewhere, but it's not in my bookmarks anymore.

    Maybe it's marketed as Pledge in the Netherlands?

    okay, if its enamel, revell are notorious for having obscene cure times with their paints. That's probably why you are having trouble in the first place.
    The only real thing you can do is get a UV light. Has to be the good kind (kind of spendy), paint light coats, and stick them under the light, it helps harden the enamel better and a bit faster. Honestly though, you need to switch paints.
    Otherwise you could mix in some Testors clearcoat (shiny) or dull coat (satin), not quite as cost effective, but if you had better paints....again.

    Generally, you get what you pay for, so if you are buying cheap paints.....etc....
