Shellac and painting help...


New Member
I was wondering if there was some sort of shellac or finisher that could be applied ontop of the final coat of paint to produce a glossy looking pep. armor piece. I would like to know:
A. What type of shellac or gloss finish to use?
B. Which one looks better, matte or gloss?
C. Whats the best way to do a realistic paint job?

Another quesition I have is that when doing pepakura is it possible to use bondo to add the tiling levels that go down the top front of MC's helm? Also, how detalied can you be with bondo or is it very limiting??

Thanks for your replys.
