Hi! I designed a model that is relatively simple and has two halves, and I would like the top half to have a white gloss finish, and the bottom to have a colored satin finish. What is the best way to achieve this?

If I was to paint the model, would it require any surface finishing on my part, or is the WSF polished enough that a coat of paint would go on smooth?

Is there any kind of coating we could apply to make the top glossy, and the bottom have a satin finish texture?

Thank you.
