How are you guys, I just wonder if there any spray coating for WSF to prevent it from getting dirty ?

Something like the coating for printing and art work . I just wonder if it works for WSF as well.

thanks guys .

I'm off to buy some clear Plasti-Dip Spray tomorrow, will try it out and let you know how it goes.

I'd be really interested in finding out what results you get, Madox.

mynameismarcohk, you may have read the thread http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=2012&a mp;start=0&S=c690745ef819fb019882f62790c185d0 in which our man dadrummond relates experiences with spray-lacquering.

I'm thinking of trying some thick, lo-fi finishes on strong/flexible that might give the impression of a chunky acrylic type ring. For these, dips seem the logical choice, rather than hundreds of coats of spray.

I've had some success with the plasti-dip spray though I personally don't like the 'rubbery' feel to the models now after spraying...

I had my models painted already so really didn't need the spray. Adds a bit of 'gloss' to it too. Will try take some photos later.
