Semi gloss paint + matt coat = Flat paint ???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I just wanna confirm something. Forgive my ignorance but our store ran out of Tamiya Flat white and Black. They do have the gloss/semi gloss black and white though. So assuming I want a matt finish on my model, would it give the same effect as if I used flat paint from the beginning?? Coz I generally paint like this

1. Paint

2. Gloss coat

3. Decal

4. Gloss coat

5. Matt


Would it matter in whatever way if I used Gloss Black or Flat black from the beginning?

If you are using gloss paint in step 1, you do not need step 2 before decaling. You can apply your decals directly onto the gloss paint.
