      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Dupli-Color is an acrylic enamel. I assume that you are using spray cans.

Therefore, one suggestion is to heat the can slightly with a pan of warm water prior to spraying. This along with a good 5 minutes of shaking will activate the glossy agents in the paint you are using.

Drying can effect the gloss as well especially if the item painted is allowed to dry in a cool humid location. However once dry, the paint can be polished back to a glossy sheen. Even clear.
