Response to Filters with Vallejo...

I also had a problem with turpentine eating through paint and plastic. There seems to be a lot of uses of the word "turpentine". I used a refined turpentine specifically for oil painting. I think this is a very "hot" or reactive type of solvent. White or Mineral Spirits are often called turpentine and are less reactive and these are probably better to use. I now always coat with some kind of varnish. before using a wash, and use white spirit. I have yet to see a good definition of paint solvents which is internationally recognisable. I think Mig Jimenez recommends "Turpentine" for washes but am not sure what he means by this as there may be different strengths of "Turpentine" which is a specific type of solvent made from pine-tree extract and not just white spirit.
