Re: Lint and rubberised horse hair?

The variation in thickness is all down to how 'wet' the glue is at the moment the interlining is applied. I think I re-did a couple of spots on the sample to fill in any bald patches and this can created a nice clumped effect. After painting the texture of the grass was enhanced by going over the su...

Re: Painting problem

Did you use any decal softener - microsol or similar, wonder if this has reacted with the varnish/gloss layer. Halford's car paints are now all 'acrylic', and can take a long time to polymerize. The can of satin black I've just looked at advises allowing 2 weeks for the paint to fully harden A polis...
