finishing (weathering/panel lines/varnishes) with enamel paint base ...
i've made model kits before but this is the first time i'm venturing into the more advance techniques such as panel lines, weathering and varnishes. my understanding is as follows -
paint the model kit, apply varnish to protect the underlying paint, apply decals, apply varnish again to protect the decals, apply panel lines/weathering and a final coat of varnish (if needed).
broadly speaking, is the above procedure correct?
also - i paint using enamels (modelmaster). online, i mainly see varnishes for protecting acrylic paints. can i use the same acrylic varnish for enamel paints? would it cause any issues?
if acrylic varnishes cause issues with enamels, then what varnish/protective coat should i use for my enamels, so that if i do panel lines/weathering (and clean it later using a thinner), the enamel paint coat is not effected?
noob here in these advance techniques ... please help :)
