well have 2 coats on the tank and it did not bother the paint or decals. Just did not give me the effect that i was thinking it would. Beginner here thought it was going to give me that dusty look. at this point it still looks the same
it is just for flat look and i used it to apply the rust powder

The trouble with using a thinned paint like Buff or Flat earth for weathering is it looks exactly that like its thinned paint.... I use white and pigment powders to make up my dust effects and you can even buy Ammo or AK products pre made dust effects....
I spray mine on but you can also use a soft brush and when it dries it looks like proper dust.

Just my 2 cents worth guys..

Cheers Ken
