i was curious as what some of you used for a flat clear, if you use it at all. i am currently using a semi gloss clear made by spies-heckter. but it does not hold up to the rocks. i tried putting devcon over that but it takes away the flat looking that i am trying to achieve. does anyone know what lucky craft uses on there mat pumpkin. it lookes and feels rubbery when you peel it off.

put epoxy on it and wet sand it with 600 grit paper to dull the finish.

I have used steel wool in the past over envirotex to create a flat look but I will let you know that it will not look flat once it is in the water and wet.

I don't know if this will work on the epoxy but have you considered buying a flattening agent additive. It's made for gloss paints and I've seen it at paint stores for house painting as well in several hobby shops.

I tried a flattener with Devcon and it didn't seem to phase it at all. I too am still searching for the proper technique.
