Hello
Trying to brush Testors Model Master paint (steel).
It is an acrylic paint.
Stirred well, but wants to clump. What can I use to thin it?
I usually use Tamiya paints.

Thank you.

Testors makes a universal acrylic thinner for their Acryl line that will also thin Pactra and Polly Scale. It comes in a 4oz bottle. Product #50496.

You can also use isopropyl alcohol to thin them and its cheaper too
