This brings out a realistic felling better than a painted top coat. Mr.TOP COAT can be applied over slide marks(decals) without blemishes. A good way to eliminate differences between the paints and the slide marks is making the model surface smoother. Can be applied over Mr. COLOR water-based hobby colors and enamel paints. Can be used for painting that begins over slide marks. Using Mr. COLOR or Mr. SUPER CLEAR over TOPCOAT will cause it to dissolve.
