Response to Avoiding "tide marks"...

Hi Chris!
Here are a couple ways that might help.
1-Blend the tide marks in with stippling action using old,scruffy brush that is slightly damp with solvent.
2-some tide marks(with chalk/pigment help)can look natural in some spots if you are going after the muddy/rainsoaked look.
3-Assuming the Future coat is there to seal decals,shoot a layer of dullcoat before the washes.This helps prevent'runoff' of the wash.
4-Use a thinner wash,generally 5% color/95% solvent is good.You should just barely notice a color deposit when wet.It will be more intense as it drys.Much easier to add more than try to remove.
