    Red Beast Man color advice

    Trying to match the Power-Con exclusive Red Beast Man color. Can any of the masters (pun!) here give some thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Thanks. Got any mixing tips? I imagine I'll try to find the closest brick reddish color I can. Do I try to darken with black? I'm new.

    And I imagine a matte finish will be too dull. Gloss? Semi-gloss?

    Use black very sparingly, it can pull the color out of your paint. Maybe try to mix with dark brown, and keep some pure red on had to add some drops to bring the color back in. (Slowly mix in the color, test, then change as needed)

    The last coat of paint you want to be light on the gloss.

    Always clear-coat when done so seal in the color.

    Forgive my ignorance here. What do you mean by light on the gloss for the last coat? A different paint for the final coat (same color but different finish)?

    And should the clear coat be matte, semi-gloss, gloss?

    Again -sorry for the newbie questions. I really appreciate the help.
