Customs / Re: how many layers of dullcote?

I only do one or two coats of primer.  (One is usually plenty, and two is definitely sufficient.)

You want to try and end up with as few layers of sealant as possible when the custom is finished in order to decrease the likelihood for peeling, flaking, cracking, and discoloration later on.
I usually do one or two layers to prime, one coat in between each layer of work, and two to three coats to seal the finished custom.  I try to stay within 7 or 8 layers of sealant total.

nice! so they're good to go already. thanks!  :P

Customs / how many layers of dullcote?

hello! my partner and i are working on our first face ups - i'm working with draculaura and he's doing lagoona. we're using testors dullcote as both the primer and the sealant, and i was wondering how many layers are best to prepare it before starting the actual faceup? we've already done three layers on draculaura and two on lagoona (allowing each layer to dry before applying the next.) we're planning to use a mix of pastels, acrylic and watercolour pencils.

thanks for any advice you have!  :biggrin:
