    Greetings fellow Radicons!

    I've been working on my monthly kitbash/repaint and this one has required that I use a bit of both enamel and acrylic paint (its hard to find some colors in one type or the other when money is an issue) Is there a decent clearcoat spray, preferably a dull coat, that works for both kinds of paint? I typically only see clearcoat specifically for enamel or acryllic, of the ones that work for both stain on white :x

    Any help or advice is appreciated, as always :]

    I'm a little out of the loop with the most cutting edge clearcoats, but when I used to do military vehicles using mixed media, I would clear between coats of different types of paints. However, I will admit that you don't have the clearance/rub issues when doing models, so that many coats of paint and clearcoats are not an issue!
