View Full Version : Sealer removed paint?

25-12-2009, 08:40 PM
I spent several days painting an Ork Trukk, and it turned out fabulous. I used GW Pure Sealer and when it dried it seems to have removed any Boltgun Metal paint (which was painted over the chaos black undercoat I sprayed on the whole model).

In those places where the Boltgun Metal was, I now have no paint and just model (which appears to be nicely sealed).

Has this happened to anyone else?

I am very discouraged.

I believe, (from what I've heard) you need to spray it with varnish first then with the sealer, to prevent that from happening.

sealer IS varnish ;)

I have had so many minis screwed up by GW sealer in that way. I switched to Krylon It works better cheaper and dose not yellow over time like GW sealer dose.

Here is a link to Krylon.

Don't really use it, but I've heard that you need to spray it with something else first... and make sure everything is properly dry.
