Jhedir6 Posted October 12, 2016 Share Posted October 12, 2016 David, I don't have a specific ratio that I use if I need to thin the BIN. I like to refer to what I call the "sheeting" action in the jar. Like the consistency of milk, when you swill the jar--------when what's inside the jar settles in a smooth "sheet" that's translucent, then it's OK to airbrush in my experience.As far as alcohol, just plain 'ole Isopropyl alcohol has worked for me. Either 70 or 90%.Mark, you make a good point about the paint consistency these days. Like everything else, manufacturers (doesn't matter the product) or trying to stay ahead of the game as far as their costs are concerned. So it very well could be that they're substituting more solvents instead of solids. All the more reason particularly with the kind of work I do on models, to barrier the plastic as much as possible. I've come to distrust the plastics in kits today, as well as the paint coming from the manufacturers------especially using the 1:1 automotive stuff. Thanks Bill. I'm planning on giving it a go tomorrow. I picked up one of the new Camaro snap kits and I'll use it on that as a test bed. I was curious about the alcohol as I have both 70 and 91, just didnt want to waste any of the BIN using the wrong percentage. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
