I don’t know what happened here, but it’s pretty disappointing. I painted these figures about a year ago and they came out really well. I put them in the box and forgot about them. At one point I pulled them out to show someone and they were fine. I was looking at them again the other day, and, egads, how did they turn brown?
It’s more pronounced than in these photos, but take a look at this:
What could cause that? I’m pretty sure I know in general, but not specifically and I have no idea why. I’m pretty sure it’s some interaction between sealers but I’m not entirely positive. I guess that I put a sealer on to put a final dull down on parts that were still shiny and that sealer reacted with what was already there. But there are two mysteries: why this reaction? and why wasn’t the reaction instantanious? They were fine for some time and then turned brown later.
Here’s another one:
My guess is the only solution will be to paint over the browned area.
It looked like it only happened on top of the off white, so that’s something I guess….
