I've just completed my first batch of Musketeers using the Army painter strong dip. They have turned out really nice, but the matte spray has been a bit inconsistent. out of the 12 sprayed 3 have got some slight checking or cracking in the varnish. Nothing too bad though. I'm actually really pleased with how awsome the miniatures look with the matte coat.
I also painted up a few GW minis and a similar thing happened on a couple of those- mainly on metallic parts.
So… Did I apply it too thickly? Or could it have been down to temperature? I'm going to be sensible and blame my technique before I blame the varnish- I always seem to struggle.
At least they didn't come out white a powdery like they have in the past with other sprays.
Any help is greatly appreciated (and I'll try and get some pictures of my musketeers posted soon).
