Whenever I buy some, it would seem…
Can anyone recommend some brush on matt varnish that is actually matt?
Vallejo’s pretty good.
I prefer aerosol (steady), either Flair Spectrum or Testors.

Testors has never failed me, spray or brush on.
You'll shoot your eye out, kid!
I use Windsor and newton acrylic matt varnish always stir the bottle very well and use thin washes of varnish. Always brush in the varnish and never let it clog in the crevices of the model.

Agree with using Winsor & Newton.
Cheers all, I will experiment!
I tried Winsor and Newton.
My first results were annoyingly shiny. After I had finished swearing, I calmed down and tried again!
Second attempt, I stirred and stirred and stirred. It does dry nice and matt if you do that.
