Hi

I have an old stock of model master acrylic paints. When I went to use one today it was very thick, mud consistency. I tried to stir it heavily, shake the bottle very hard, but nothing helps. I want to airbrush this paint.
What is the best way to do that?

Thanks

Patrick

'' It's dead, Jim...''

Or add distilled water, put in a jigsaw, shake for 5 mins and pray...

Cheers
