Thinning Metallic Paint
Posted 24 July 2008 - 07:19 PM
I might have missed it already, but is there a tutorial on how to thin out metallic paint without getting it to separate? Can someone give me advice on this?
I'm currently painting Warlord Mini 14017 which is Naomi, Mistress of Wings. For her "bracers" and the top of her skirt I used Dwarf Bronze (Citadel paint) and when I first started I thinned it with just water. I looked for a retardant today at Michael's and they had none, so it was just water. Well, when I did it the paint separated. I didn't put too much water in either.
How can one paint with metallic paints when it comes to thinning? Any advice would be a big benefit! Thanks in advance!! :)
