Thanks for commenting on this subject!
I had thought the problem Edison was having was either too much thinner, or not enough, but I wanted to hear it confirmed with a
different source before I commented on it..
Try taking 6-8 drops of paint, and add 1-2 drops of thinner for hand-brushing. Add more paint or thinner as necessary.
Other things that can help:
Mr. Retarder Mild - slows down the drying process.
Mr. Color Leveling Thinner - thinner with Retarder Mild mixed in. Comes in a small 110ml bottle or a huge 400ml bottle.
Of course, I don't have either of those items in stock yet, so you'll have to get them from Japan if you want them, sorry!
