Q:. Thinning Italeri acrylic paints
Posted by Big Chudy on Saturday, May 26, 2012 12:18 PM
Hi,
 
Besides using Italeri's acrylic paint thinner, what else can be used to thin these paints for airbrushing?
 
TIA
Andrew

If they're made for Italeri by Vallejo, as some have speculated, alcohol may not work too well.
