Response to PLEASE HELP washes

Just a thought, but when I use oils for a wash, I thin with turpentine, the same as when I'm painting figures. I do tend to use the 'recommended' thinner for the product I'm using, whether Humbrol, Vallejo, Tamiya, or Hannants. If you search ML you will note that others use all sorts, but I'm a little cautious when a great investment of time is about to be wasted/ruined!

By the way, oils thinned with turps works for me, but I've only been doing this for a couple of years, whereas the experience on this site is almost infinite!

Good luck.
