Dot filter on Hetzer

Recommended Posts

I want to try doing a dot filter process....that is, small dots of oil paint dragged down over the surface. Should it be done over a flat or gloss finish?

gloss surface
pro: easy to recover mistakes since the surface is smooth, pigments won't have anywhere to grab

con: hence it's easy to remove the oil paints more than you want to causing you to start over


flat surface

pro: searching...

cons: porous surface means it'll absorb / pull / hang onto anything and everything; causing tidemarks from thinner and/or linseed oil. hard to clean up as a result - might leave stains behind even if it looks like fully cleaned (if that's what you are after tho it's an upside)
