Does anyone have success using acrylics? If so, what have you used to thin them with?
I've tried acrylicsa few times, with no-so-great results. I've thinnd them with alcohol and water and they turn out blotchy.
I'm using Grumbacher 'oil' paints thinned down with odorless mineral spirits. I do put a light coat of 'lacquer clear' over the base paint, then add any wash. I get good capillary action this way.
