several light coats will prevent most of the sheen.
Do you remember we're you purchased the Krylon FLAT? I tried some matte, I personally think it has to much shine for my liking on certain decoys, can't find FLAT anyplace
I always do 3 VERY light coats and don't get a shine with 1311 matte. Someone made the point of ducks having a natural shine from feathers. I'd say my decoys don't shine more than a real duck.
I understand what "someone made a point " of shine, I don't see shine on the birds in my area on a blue bird sunny day!!! Sheen is one thing, shine is another , to each there own. I can shine my drake mallards head, not an issue.
I will continue to look for FLAT.
Junior- will try and take a pic tomorrow of flat and matte on the same two decoys, as visual reference .
