  1. Help ... Im running an experiment trying to mix up a Dark earth I'm satisfied with ? Most are to tan to my eye so im looking to add a bit more brown. I have Mr.Color Dark earth bottle #22 and I have Tamiya XF-60 Dark yellow. I have always read that you can mix Gunze and Tamiya as they are both Lacquer acrylics. So I mixed three bottle caps with varying amounts of each when i did i got a snotty goo ? So i dipped my brush into Tamiya Lacquer thinner and the colors turned snow white and even more gloopy ? Yet when i cleaned my brush in the Tamiya Lacquer thinner it came out clean as a whistle looking almost new ? Im so confused anyone have any clue why the weird reaction in one place (bottlecaps) but no reaction in thinner jar ? Dennis
  2. I've sprayed enamels before but curious what the collective thinking is better for thinning and cleaning. Im going to be spraying Model master Fluorescent red soon on a model ? I have always used enamel thinner ? But since i came back from my hiatus, i have only just used Mineral spirits. While researching i came across a few entries about using generic or Tamiya Lacquer thinners (beige/yellow cap), to thin and clean. Has anyone used Lacquer thinner for enamels and what is your opinion about the two any differences, negatives, or pro's ? Any and all answers are thankfully received. Dennis
