Puirty Seal Damage

posted Aug 03, 2012 19:16:33 by ScottMorgan
I may have just completely screwed up dozens of hours of work on my ghouls because this %^^#&#$% purity seal has ghosted a layer of faint white over them. Anyone have any good suggestions for recovery?

It's not a total loss, but I definitely have lost a LOT of the brilliance in the color I put down. :(

I've heard similar stories from people in the past. Unfortunately, I've not heard of a way to reverse to effect. I know how frustrating it is to accidentally botch up a paint job.

I heard on a point hammered episode that rubbing a little olive oil will fix it.

I know this post is a few weeks old at this point but this is how I've fixed it in the past:

-respray the models with a gloss varnish (should fill in the gaps that cause the "matteness", restore it to a clear texture)
-respray again with matte varnish (if the first step removed the ghosting)

Personally, I use testors glosscoat and dullcoat, and have never had the ghosting issue that I did with Purity seal once in awhile. It's heavily dependent on conditions. I spray in my basement since it's always perfect conditions, and hold my breath. :D
