Geez stirring what a great idea Thanks John I should have thought of that.
So if I add to much thinner I have a wash, too little and we get the famous brush streaks. Thought somebody may had experience to share in their thinning of these acrylics so this hairy stick user would not destroy a kit or waste a bottle of paint no longer made. My experience is when a paint is advertised for the air brusher the paint is usually thick just so you can thin to your hearts content. And so my question was born and placed on the board.
I have used enamels extensively until the introduction of acrylics. I dropped them when kids, pets, environment came along. That and they destroyed ever increasingly priced brushes while not being consistent in sheen. That is experience.
Fascinates me you felt you had to share your experience on the thread which you had very little to none either with acrylics or brush.
