Question about Varnishing


I have a question about varnishing miniatures.

I use Humbrol gloss varnish for protection and then Daler Rowney to get a matt finish.

I always need several layers of matt varnish, which I apply thinned down, until all glossy parts disappear.

Although I’m careful not to let the matt varnish pool, there are always parts where this happens. I correct this with acrylic paint.

I’m happy with the result, but the process takes quite long.

Is this normal or do you think I could improve my technique?

I'm currently varnishing three palm trees and undercoating three bamboo men.

Hope you are well!
