Custom Advice- One Year Update

(1/3) > >>

cowboyopossum:
The spray sealant I used on my Nettle custom is still tacky after a year of her being on display. What should I do? Maybe I should go over her with Mod Podge? I don't want to ruin her paint job.
Any advice helps!

BlackCurtains:
Nooooo Mod Podge! Mod Podge is glue, it will only make her worse.

I would get some polyurethane varnish and brush it on. Vallejo makes a good one.

cowboyopossum:
I see! People have been getting mixed results from Mod Podge, so I was hesitant. I think the air I sprayed the sealant in is too humid, but I can't really control that. Thank you!

BlackCurtains:
Mod Podge was once the recommended sealer, but it's really not good for most objects. It's great with paper. I live in a very hot and humid climate and have spent years looking for a sealer that won't go tacky. These days, I choose to leave my customs mostly unsealed, but when I do use one, I have the Vallejo.

Griffin:
I second BC's advice, polyurethane varnish should do the trick. :)
