I just got the Tamiya 'D' weathering kit and I've read that you might want to put a sealer on after using it, to keep it from smearing? If so, should I use laquer? Thanks!

testor's Metalizer sealer, Semigloss clear or Tamiya TS-79 Semi gloss clear. Better to airbrush if possible. The weathering sets are acrylic based. They do not really need sealed.

Thanks Dale, I didn't think so either. But, I've read where people do. The instructions don't call for any sealer and I'm just using it on headers.
