Flat Coat

Started flatcoating some of the black parts and the Duplicolor flatcoat made didn't really do anything. It's cheap as hell and I tried to carefully mist it as well as decant it and spray trough the airbrush, but the flatness leaves a lot to be desired.

So I picked up a can of Tamiya clear flat (TS-80) and it's awesome, but pretty much exactly 10x as expensive! (Duplicolor 400ml ~ 3.50€, Tamiya 100ml 8.90€)
Something about you get what you pay for...

I guess i'll try to decant the tamiya and airbrush it to save color and money.

What would you call decanting?
Spraying the paint into a jar through a tube, or is there another method.
I can never keep that paint wet after that.

yea, trough a tube in a jar. I had some varying success with different paints but usually it works well. (doesn't seem to work well with primer cans) I just spray in an empty tamiya paint jar and then shake/stir out the trapped gas.
