Be careful not to let the varnish pool, especially between legs. You don’t need a very thick coat of varnish. MattThen they were given two coats of Anti-Shine MattVarnish. Be even more careful when painting on the matt varnish. When applying the matt, brush it out well from any nooks and crannies where it is likely to collect and pool. BASING The bases are 20mm round coins. I used superglue to stick the models in place, blowing over them with a cold hairdryer to prevent the glue whitening off onto the models. When positioning the models I made sure the model looked right on the base. The bases were then filled, smoothed off and left to dry hard. I then applied the trompe l’oeil paint effect. The key to the effect is to decide where the light is coming from and highlight accordingly. The final highlight is on just the edge of the fake paving.
