Ardcoat is a Citadel Technical 'Ardcoat is a gloss varnish that has several uses. A thin layer of 'Ardcoat looks great over gemstones and lenses, giving them a shiny, reflective appearance. It is also very useful when applying transfers as it gives the transfer a smooth surface to adhere to. It is also a convenient way to protect your miniatures (because we can all be a little clumsy every now and again). This pot contains 12ml of 'Ardcoat, one of 4 Technical paints in the Citadel Paint range. As with all of our paints, it is a non-toxic, water-based acrylic paint designed for use on plastic, metal, and resin Citadel miniatures.
