Hello,

I have take it upon myself to paint my miniatures that came with the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure game.
I have done some research on the topic so i think i can handle it. Most of the supplies i had lying around the house luckily (even tho neither my wife or I have an 'artistic bone' in our body).

Anyways, my question is: Can i use Mod Podge Matte for a finish on my Minis? We have some already and it would be great if i could just use that. But i couldn't tell if that was something 'ok' to use for the last step of protecting the paint job.

So is it ok to use? Is there something that is the more obvious choice that is worth getting?

-Thanks.

Oh, and I live in an apartment, so sprays are pretty much out of the question.

I've never used it but with a quick google search it looks like it will work. The only concern may be its durability. Board game minis can be handled and tossed around allot.

The best durability I have found comes from using a clear coat acrylic for strength and then hitting it with a matte to get rig of the shine. Both can be picked up in brush on forms. There are also people that swear by Future acrylic floor wax.

BGG also has a Miniature Painters Guild
