    Great results

    Was very pleased with the nice Matt finished achieved using this. If you plan on using this however make sure to give it a very thorough stir for a few minutes. If used without stirring it actually leaves a pretty glossy finish as the matt agent seems to settle at the bottom of the bottle. It seems to go a long way so you should get plenty of use from a bottle.

    Good finish

    Only used this product once but the finish gives a good flat matt coat finish to model,apply thinly to avoid runs.
