I had meant to take a pic of the CreateFX stuff I used, for those not familiar with it. Here it is. The one thing I didn’t notice soon enough is that it takes more than a single coat of Dullcoat to knock the shine back off of it! I had intended to lay on some oil filtering, but once I got done with the pastels, I decided I didn’t want to do so, so a single coat of dull was all I used to blend stuff in. Then after I took the masking off the nose lens and painted the nav lights, I noticed the enamel stain still had a sheen to it. Oh well – it just looks a bit more “wet,” which is fine also as it adds a bit more dimension.
Anyway – I liked the effect I got with this and the control I had with it, so will use it again on other projects now that I see how it performs.
