    those work better with water based paint like acrylic, or ink.

    make sure its the right kind of paint thinner, or deglosser, or eater(its all the same)
    get the liquid kind, i accidently bought a gel kind...it didnt say but it looked just like the others...when i shook the bottle i mix paints in it blew the cap off and paint went everywhere, it was chunky and looked like shit <_<
