    you need oil based paint to thin with paint thinner, or any other petroleum distillates.

    acrylic and latex are water based so you need to use water to thin them, but they aren't as good or as permanent as oil based paint, so stick with oil based paint

    you can use ordorless thinners if you want a less smelly paint for markers

    DONT USE THAT MUCH!!! I personally use Anti-Freeze...but its your call!
    Yeah! Or, just ask...we only reccomend Rusto because we KNOW its oil based...and oil based is better because you can thin it good...

    im not sure if this should be in the ink thread or not, but since ive been fucking around with paint mixes, (im too broke for ink) ill contribute.

    paint thinner,(depends if it contains the following:
    toulene(N.ot R.ecommended)
    acetone (NR)
    nail polish remover-if your desperate
    mineral spirits
    xylene(NR TO THE MAX!)
    will thin enamel based and oil based paints.

    and tanka, the last post was in '06

    Could you make some good ink out of that car paint that the mechanics put in the prayer could you possibly make that thin enough to make it flow through the nib cuz i've got so much of that stuff from my neighbor
