you're getting some good advice here vader. some stuff I wish I know before I started on some of my customs. this might seem more of a well duh, but make sure you read those directions on the can. different sealers need to be used different ways. I had the same problem with the stickyness after spraying my figs. after I finished a custom hailfire droid i did I read the directions on the can, and it turned out great. don't spray to close to whatever it is you're sealing. one of my problems was I was so excited about finishing getting it painted and all that I wanted to seal it and be done. do it lightly, let it dry, come back and spray it again, I'd say about 3 times and it's good. the stuff I use even though it says matte it still left it a little to glossy so I just hit it with the Testors dull coat and it looks great. Testors also has a brush on version of their dull coat, but I haven't tried it out yet.
