Response to Pin Wash?

I though this only happened to me!!
How nice to find out I'm REALLY not the only one.
But, by many times of this I found the solution.
1. after your finished painting your base coats or camo clear coat with flat or semi gloss.
So your color will not get burn or colored by your wash.
2.your wash was to thick.(not being mean, but from my past.)
you want your wash to be more like dirty thinner than paint.
(I do about an 80-85% thinner to about 20-15% paint)
I have really hand the best luck with oils to use cheap hardware store
paint thinner.
it's mineral sprit based.
I have tried everything including artist thinners at 7-8 dollars.
3. do several light washes compared to one large wash.
let each one dry about 15-20 min.
then VERY lightly drybrush off excess.
4. then clear coat one last time.
Hope I helped you
