    Default Matte clear coat

    looking for a brand of a truly Matte clear coat. I did all the weathering on my truck and when i sprayed it with Krylons matte it dried with a sheen. http://scalebuildersguild.com/forum/...edness-Vehicle

    can anybody recommend a brand of clear paint that drys completely flat like flat black paint does?

    Might I suggest how you apply the rattle can clear, ie. spray it on "dry".

    Don't rely on the chemical make up for satin or matt finish. Spray from far away, just using small bursts, almost misting it on. Wait patiently between coats, so the next doesn't melt the last. You can make the finish as matt as you like doing this.
