What matt varnish would you reccomend, is it best sprayed on as well?

I use 100% Acrylic resin matt varnish by Vallejo and spray it with an air bursh thinned with water. I cant see any reason why painting it on wouldnt work but i would thin it water and apply very thin coats. I use the varnish as a key for the pigments and to kill the new paint shine. You could carefully rub the paint work down with some fine wet and dry

I dip the paint brush into the pigment and tap it gently to knock off the excess don't knock to much off. The pigment is then applied to the tractor with a dabbing action to build the dry pigment up.

Is this dry brush stuff a removable product then Ben ? Whilst I love the finishes some of my stuff took a serious amount of effort to build, like the combines, would like to see the dusted for along with other stuff, but do like them clean , we did keep all our stuff washed down every day especially at harvest anyway .

It is removable if you don't use any pigment fixer. By using a very soft brush and blowing the pigment will be removed

I move onto the tyres. You could use mig pigments as I have on the tractor but I use a Tamiya weathering master set A using the sand shade. I find this gives a better dusty/dry mud effect on the tyres then using pigment and is less messy.
