Matting not curing (vinyl)

Post by Court_LLRN » Fri Dec 15, 2017 10:01 am

I wanted to throw this out there for advice before I proceed.
I'm currently working on a Grant kit from bountiful baby and a Michelle Wosnjuk kit. I always apply a thin layer of matte varnish (heat set) before painting as I feel this makes the painting go on more even.
I applied the matte varnish to both kits and the one on the Grant kit cured perfectly but the one on the Michelle kit is having a very hard time curing. This is the second time I've had issues with curing on a Michelle Wosnjuk kit.
Has anyone else had this issue? Should I proceed with painting and see if the painting layers curing will help with the matting curing? Or should I keep trying to cure the matte varnish first?
