Dear friends. Im writing you from mexico. I have a question. I prime, paint my model( acrylic MIG) gloss varnish Model master, decals, again gloss varnish ( Model master) perfectly cure, and then I try to make a pin wash with tamiya panel line accent. The problem is here, when I try to clean the excess of pin wash ,I try to do it with mineral spirit, odorless solvent, my paint shrink. The questions are: Does I have to usea acrylic varnish instead of Model master, or with which liquid can I clean the excess without affect my paint. thanks a lot in advance

PD: sorry about the typo in title

Yes, make sure any varnish or paint you are using is acrylic if you are going to be applying enamel effects on top of it.
