Thin paints not sticking!

There are various light mist paints that I like to use to tone down colors or to "Tint" my models. I know that I should spray very thinned paints for this purpose. However, it seems that when I get paint really thin and watery, it never sticks to the model properly. Even if I spray with very low pressure from far away, it seems to run and puddle up. If i make it thick enough to stay on smooth it tends to cover up too much of the below. What can i do to solve this?
