Hi All.   I have decided that it’s about time that my carriages carried passengers, but the ones I have seen in magazines are always glossy, this is okay if it is raining. The limited skills that I have don’t run to painting people ,Is there an easy way to do this job.   Best wishes Kevin

I would go with a teeny bit of black weathered powder. Try it on your least favourite first and just rub a tiny bit on your fingers or use a small paintbrush. 
I use this method I use to remove the shine off objects.

That's neat trick Chris - I will have to give that a go.  I have a bottle of matt varnish used for wargaming figures because it is made by Citadel (Warhammer paints) applied with a soft brush, which also works quite well.

Hi  Chris.  Thank you for your reply. Excellent idea which I will try that out as soon as Lockdown is over or I can get out, which ever comes first. Best wishes Kevin

Matt varnish. Line them up and a rattle can of acrylic matt misted over them. As Michael says, a brush and acrylic works just as well.

Varnish might be a better option than powders. You have to be very careful with powders to not over-do things. Although they can be washed off there is a tendency for an awkward little bit to be stubborn and not move from exactly where you don't want it to be.

Sometimes I come out of the garage and I’ve accidentally camouflaged my face with green and black powder.. Seriously though, less is more with them but I find them quite effective. I bet the Matt spray works pretty well too, easier for a large number also!

Hi Chris.  Thank you again. The more tips that I read, the more I get confused. But, it would seem which ever method I go for I will probably make a pig’s ear of it . Best wishes Kevin
