    What’s the best method to get a Matte finish when making a custom diecast?

    From what I've read, regular paint first, including decals and clear gloss, allow to fully cure and dry. Then a couple light coats of clear flat. Don't quote me. I'd test FIRST, LOL!

    Its been said that it can't be done in the home hobby world. Only factory applied tampo graphics on a satin finish will give the result your looking for on a diecast and from what I've read, this is why:

    If you use a flat paint to paint the car -well then you have to trim extremely close to the decals so that none of the carrier show its gloss against the flat finish. Sooo, yeah kinda hard to achieve..but possible.
    If you try the above mention by MOPARBOB (no discredit Bob, I love ya Brother!) you'll have a flat finish but lose the gloss of the decals against the flat finish because essentially everything is flat when you apply the dullcoat after finishing..

    I've built customs for awhile now and believe me, I'm trying to figure a work around on this too because I need to build a few satin customs myself..

    Anyone else chime in here and help us out !!!
