A PAINTING TIP from Les Clarke
When repainting figures with enamel paints often the gloss paint does too good a job and the figures are too shiny overall. If, for instance, completely repainting a head, after the flesh coat, test that the paint is touch dry, (be careful) take some talc and cover the head. Rub the talc over the surface and remove the excess off with a brush. This has the effect of toning down any harsh highlight areas and gives a more subtle appearance. Be careful with red paint that it has dried properly or a white residue can result.
