It looks pretty good matte if you use a really dry roller. The problem is that the coating is very thin and hard to peel off. You'd have to do a lot of coats to get a thick enough coating to peel easily. Putting on a thicker coat causes a lot of tiny bubbles and a very "orange peel" type look. It's also very difficult to get a consistent coating without roller trails.

It's definitely worthwhile to protect your paint. For faking a frozen color, not so much IMO.
I've got an idea. Try using scotch tap to peel off the edge of the thin film?
