BRUSH PAINTING WITHOUT BRUSH MARKS...

Are Humbrol paints prone to leave brush marks?

Probably no more or less than other hobby enamels. I don't find a great difference between Testors and Humbrol in that regard. That is to say, both will leave evidence of brush strokes in many cases. Technique, brush quality and paint quality are the key factors to a smooth brushed finish, but I so seldome paint anything that has a broad surface by hand anymore that I have really lost touch with this aspect of the hobby.

Way back in the 80s I had sucess with humbrol doing car shellsZip it!

Nowadays after a stroke it is difficult for me to get a good finish - flat is ok but gloss.............
