"Great for Resin!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Used on a resin ball-jointed doll, and worked extremely well, evenly sprays and has a decent amount of tooth. Will definitely buy another can once this one runs out.

"Great matt finish"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This spray finish gives a very matt finish. Other spray varnishes I have used that are meant to be matt always give a satin or slightly glossy finish. Not this spray, it is very matt.

"Good product, but faulty can"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I can't deny that the finished results of this product are great. However I've now had 2 spray cans of Army Painter Varnish stop working before I was even half way through them. I always turn them upside down and spray after use to clear the nozzle and always use at appropriate temperatures. The spray cans are just really unreliable, save yourself $20 and either buy a different brand or buy the varnish in a tin.

This acrylic varnish is truly unique and has been tailored to remove the shine of any models being dipped with Quickshade or painted using conventional paints. Although really matt, the sprays original formula retains the metallic shine from Plate Mail etc.

Always let the Quickshade dry for minimum 48 hours before using this varnish and apply it in a thin coat.

Never spray in humid conditions and cold weather.

Army Painter Colour Primers

An ingenious combination of Primer and Colour Spray in one. The Colour Primers unique formula has been designed to be used on all metal, plastic and resin miniatures and leaves a perfect finish. The extra-fine pigment and special nozzle combination makes the Colour Primers easily cover the first time. The colours are matt, making your freshly sprayed miniatures or models ready for basecoat almost right away.

Save both time and money. No need for 2 different sprays – all you need is 1 Colour Primer for perfect results.

All primers are acrylic based, matt and dries very quickly.


  1. Shake for minimum 1 minute
  2. Spray at a distance of maximum 20 cm. (no further)
  3. spray in long burst whils moving the spray back and forth

PLEASE NOTE: As this product is a Dangerous Good, shipping may take an additional 1–3 Working Days.
