apple barrel paint

Recommended Posts

I was painting a crankbait today, and asked myself a question; Why not thin my apple barrel paints in the bottle, so all I have to do is add them to my airbrush and paint?

My thinking is that I can add Xcc'c of water per ounce of paint and go to town. What am I missing here? It would be a lot more convenient than having to thin it everytime I switch a color.

I think that works well with Apple Barrel and similar hobby paints. I use AB with a large tip airbrush and thinning it with plain water in the bottle has not caused any problems. Not so with many airbrush formulated paints that don't like being thinned until just before spraying.
