Finish coat question.


Active Hunter
I'm painting my replacement bells right now and was wondering about the final finish. Looking at the exhibition photos it appears to me that they have a semi gloss satin sort of finish and not a dull matt finish. Just finished painting this one and put a satin sealer on it.......opinions? Dull cote or semi? I'm trying to go as detailed and accurate as I possibly can.
Thanks guys.


ESB looks more dull to me,so I left my knees and shoulders dull. I tried a semi/satin first,but wasn't so crazy about it.
