  1. I'm almost out of Colourcoats thinner, and given Sovereign Hobbies are warning about delayed delivery, I'm wondering what the best alternative is. I was going to give Mr Color Levelling Thinner a try until I read Jamie's recent disaster! So what do you think? plain old white spirit or something Naptha based (like Zippo lighter fluid), Thanks for any advice Colin
  2. AV Vallejo has been very secretive about its thinner composition. The paint is a polyurethane mix and does not dissolve with alcohol. Water does not wash it well either. I recently got my hands on a bottle of Butyl Cellosolve and realized that it smelt the same as the AV thinner. I got a 500ml bottle for GBP3 to make my own thinner for AV. Here is the result: A is with AV's own thinner and T is the test I ran using my own mix of 10% Butyl Cellosolve, 30% IPA and 60% water. The levelling effect is the same, the drying times are similar and the paint texture looks similar. When I used it to wash a paint brush after painting with Vallejo paint, the paint washes off and does not gum up. Butyl Cellosolve is a butyl ether and used as a solvent for acrylic resin. Its other names are 2-Butoxyethanol, Butyl glycol or EGBE (ethylene glycol monobutyl ether). A 500ml bottle costing GBP3 can make me a 5 liter batch of thinner or airbrush cleaner.
  3. I have a question that's proven a little confusing. For a long time I've had a bottle of Mig Productions Thinner for Washes, but this stuff seems to be nigh impossible to get anymore. Everywhere lists it out of stock, and Mig Productions itself doesn't seem to have a store anymore. All I can find is the Ammo Odourless Enamel Thinner, which I've no problem getting provided that it is similar to the Mig Productions Thinner in its softness and use with pigments (I use it fix them) and washes. Has anyone had any experience with both and is there any real difference between them? I'd really like to avoid harsh turps and stuff if I can. Gaz
  4. Hi all. I've been thinking of purchasing the AK interactive NATO wash, but I'm curious to know if my Mig Thinner for Washes will work with it, considering the latter is for enamel washes (and Mig washes are a pain to locate) and the AK wash is enamel based. I'm hoping so, as this would avert the need for the AK thinner and let me use the cash for another product. But I'll defer to the expertise of others. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Gaz
  5. Hi Does these new regulations regarding Airmail,that no paints,thinners, etc. are not allowed to be delivered outside UK or that it would be (very) expensive to customer due to some courier service ? I've been trying to order acryl paints and thinners from my favorite stores in UK and ran these kind of problems,I live in Finland btw. Is this some "lovely" EU thing or solely UK's ? Wonder why they can be delivered on Airmail from the Far East and North America. Have I understand something wrong myself or what....? Please help me this dear friends. TIA Teemu Haajanen
