    Anyone knows how to make Floor Polish less......shiny? I was planning to use pastel shading and I dont want it to be too shiny. I cant afford matt spray cans so floor polish is my only option so far.

    What you want is acrylic flat base. You can find it in hobby stores with the model paints. Mix it with future to create varying levels of shine. 1 part acrylic to 2 parts future gives you a nice semi-gloss or satin finish. Adding more flat base will further flatten it. I think the most I've done is 2:1 flat base to future and that have me a pretty matte finish.
