Keeping weathering from wearing off?

Recommended Posts

I recently finished up my sandy a month ago and used a mix of acrylic paint and fullers earth to weather my kit. I was curious if anyone would recommend using a sealant or type of clear coat to lock in the weathering from coming off down the road.

I'm not worried about the acrylic paint too much it seems pretty strong and hard to take off without some concerted rubbing, but for the fullers earth would it be a good idea to add something to keep it from coming off? 

I used the hair spray method of coating the parts then adding the fullers on then another coat to help lock it in but should more steps should be taken?

I mostly used acrylic in my final version of weathering, but initially used sand and hairspray.

It works, and I don't think you need to do anything further to seal it.

It does remove with soap and water if necessary

You're going to have to do touch ups regardless. Spots that rub like the ammo pouches touching the thighs, cod rubbing the thighs, etc.
