 Thought this might be useful for some of you guys.  Ultimate models emailed me this thinner/paint ratios for acrylics.

Are you purchasing it from the UK site or are there domestic on-line retailers?

And what kind of acrylics have you used it with?

Thanks

Also, I would say charts like that are generally useless, perhaps only providing a bit of guidance of where to start. There is no one 'magic number' amount of thinner that you just add to a given brand of paint to get perfect results everytime. The particular airbrush itself, line pressure, local weather conditions, technique, etc. are all significant factors in how your airbrush job comes out. Even different colors of paint in the same brand can vary in their characteristics. With airbrushing, you learn mostly by doing.

MJ is right.  I don't use Ultimate thinner.  I simply posted it thinking someone could benefit.

Thanks wpwar11-the fact that the company is implying compatibility with so many acrylics would make me want to give it a shot...in a seperate mixing vessel first...but still give it a shot.
