Yes, when you buy your base and clear, just ask for some flattening agent. you may have to experiment with your ratios on a scrap panel to get your desired effect.

One thing to remember...If you do not have a booth, you Better make sure the garage is clean and wet the floor...if you get dust in the clear,your screwed...you won't be able to color sand and buff to get it out....unless you want it to shine,which obviously you don't.

You can use enamel with laquer thinner and dull it down some.
