What will I apply or techniques to use, to make a resin finish surface appears matte?
I have this problem with the glossy look on my artworks. The glares distract viewers and that includes me. All I need is to have a matte finish appearance. Salamat!
surface preparation procedures
This is to serve as a general guideline for most acrylic paint applications.
1.Surfaces should be tested for adhesion and compatibility of material
2.Apply the paint or medium to prepared surface and let dry thoroughly.
3.Wait 72 hours for acrylic paint to cure before continuing
4. When completely dry, score surface in a crosshatch pattern using a sharp knife.
5.Apply masking tape to surface & burnish.
Remove masking tape slowly.
NOTE:If any paint comes off with the tape, good surface adhesion has not been achieved.So either a different surface preparation is necessary or the particular support is not suitable for the paint or medium tested.
