I sure hope this is the right place to post this, sorry up front if it is not!
I am in the process of painting my Boba Fett armor. And I've stumbled across a rather annoying problem. I don't have these huge nice areas to paint in, and it's way too freezing outside to paint there yet. (This needs to be done by the end of March, sadly.) So I am painting inside a room where the window is wide open to get fresh air now and then. Anyway. What happens is that while I paint, dust as a tendency to stick to the paint, and this is a huge pain in the a**! Do you have any good solutions to get rid of the dust once it's stuck? It's not a LOT, but enough for me to see it up close. Help! Will the finish satin coat cover over this or?
Thank you in advance
Ok, new problem. When I look at pictures of other people painting their armor, it looks so nice and shiny, like, not quite metallic, but almost. When I airbrush with my humbrol, it looks so... dry and woolen. Why? It's not the dust alone making it look like this, it's the paint itself. Both the airbrush and paint is completely new. And the layers I mask suddenly look normal, as if the masking liquid helps. So I wonder, do the final coating do the magic, or do I need to lightly buff/polish it with 0000 wool or something?
