    Hey all, just wondering if these paints work well with being thinned with water? I tried once with them at their regular consistancy, but that came out like crap, and I don't really want to ruin a $3 jar of paint by watering it down without prior knowledge. So with this said, if anyone has any tips or tricks to use with theis stuff would be great. Oh, please take note I'm looking to spray this once I get a leader class rotf megs. Thanks much in advance everyone!

    I use isopropyl alcohol to thin mine, works great. I usually only use water when they start to dry out in the pot and I need to bring it back to life.

    thanks for the info. I just ended up using water to thin mine out, the problem with that is while youre airburshing it, it tends to dry up and clog the container nozzle. took me 2x as long as Id of liked, but I got my ravage painted up with the base chainmail gunmetal or what ever its called..
