Krylon has stop making satin paint in several colors I need! Question can I spray something like dulcoat on Krylon gloss to end up with a satin finish? Thanks, Don

Wouldn't Dullcote yield a flat finish, even over gloss?
I've used Tamiya Semi-Gloss Clear (TS-79) to get a satin finish that matches typical manufacturer finishes pretty well.
I've used Testors spray Dullcote and it works great.
Krylon also makes clearcoats in several finishes...
I have used Krylon Colormaxx Flat Crystal Clear (I buy it from my local Lowe's). You have to let the main coat COMPLETELY dry before applying it, otherwise it will peel like crazy. I would recommend a minimum of 2 to 4 days in a well ventilated area.
My custom USAF NW-2 (the booster unit for my Lionel TMCC Missile Train) was painted with Colormaxx paints and two very thin coats of Flat Crystal Clear to finish it off. The Krylon went on thin and smooth with very few runs.
Try careful soft use of very fine steel wool. Test try it first to learn the technique to get satin finish.
Another thing to dry is to mist spray the last coat of paint from a few feet away. I just painted a tool cabinet top and did not have enough paint and about half of it looks likes satin and the other half glossy. Need to buy another can of paint to finish.
