Hi Guys
This is my first post. Apologies if I get it wrong.
I am after some help please.
I am currently using White Ensign Colourcoats paint cut with celulose thinners. I leave this for a few days and then give the model a couple of coats, by brush, of Pledge (Kleer). Leave again for a couple of days before decalling.
I am finding that Micro Set, if left on the model for more than a minute or so leaves a milky haze on the model which I cannot get rid of.
I'm guessing that it is reacting somehow with the Pledge.
Don't seem to have any issues with Micro Set.
I've trawled the web looking to see if anybody else has had this issue, but so far haven't found anything.
Any ideas?
Thanks

I have had this happen to me before, I think that micro sol has a small amount of ammonia in it and ammonia will dissolve Kleer, another coat of Kleer should make the haze disappear

Hope this helps

Thanks Pete
I have just repainted the offending area. I will recoat with Pledge again, and carry on the decalling without the aid (?)of the MicroSol this time.
I didn't really need to use it in the first place. The decals, KitsWorld, were going down so nicely with just MicroSet. I should have stopped there.
I am going to experiment on an old gash model with Xtracrylix gloss varnish and Pledge and see what happens to each area with an application of MicroSol. If the Area painted with Pledge acts up again, I will give your suggestion of another coat a go.
If only I could get a decent finish airbrushing the Xtracrylix offering.
Thanks again.

It's happened to me a couple of times before and another coat of pledge sorts it out, I read about the ammonia in sol a while ago. I think that set is acetic acid (it smells like vinegar) having a test on some old kits sounds like a plan, it's annoying when for no apoarent reason paints and varnishes react in a strange way ! It always seems to happen near the end of a build too lol

I've had that problem before also. more PLEDGE will hopefully eliminate the problem. the thorough drying times you use is a good idea. thanks for posting here, welcome anytime!
