Oil Wash With Enamel?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I know this sounds dumb but, can you use oil washes on models painted with Enamel paints? I was thinking if I let the Paint dry for a couple of days, five at most then add multiple coats of Matt cote then the oil wash wouldn't effect the paint? Could this be done? I've looked on the internet and forums for anything concerning oil and I couldn't find anything of use. I know that it sounds like a terrible idea but I really like the look of a oil wash and how much time it gives for fixing mistakes. I just wanted to make sure before I ruin the paint job on my Me-262 B-1/U-1 I'm working on. Any kind of help would be really appreciated, thanks!

I think it comes down to the type of clear you have on the model and the thinner used with the oil.  I use the Future which is an acrylic and a gloss.  I also use turpinoid with oil washes and dot filtering with oils.  Its less harsh.

You can but you need an acrylic clear coat in between. If not as soon has you try to remove excess was you will take the paint with you no matter how long you let it dry. Ask me how i know!!
