Response to What is the best thinning medium for FLOQUIL paint and at what ratio?

Well, I don't use any thinner at all, that is, if you're talking about the 1oz lacquers. They're already so thin straight from the bottle that thinning isn't neccessary. And you'll be well pleased with the results. Airbrush about 15-20 psi. They lay down very thin and there is no obscuring of detail. And they dry to the touch within minutes. Be warned, they stink to high heaven!! Practice on a spare piece of plastic first to see if you like this method or not..I'm willing to bet you will!! Hope this helps!
