I just bought a few Ammo Filters and washes and had a question- do you spray clear coats between filters, washes and streaking? I was thinking that if you don't, the thinner may cause them to blend but wasn't sure. Thanks

I usually don't, but try to give sufficient time to dry. As I apply the filters to specific locations, usually not an issue for blending, and after a day or two, I start with light washes, and again usually localized or pin washes. If I am using washes to create a specific effect, ie fuel stain, dust, etc. I will apply an acrylic clear coat in between.
