Is'nt the point of using water based paint, that its non-flammable, non-lliver damage and so forth? Thinning with DA, ISP, and acetone. Why not just use laquer based paints to begin with?. I have had the same problems with thinning out water based paint during scale tipping. It seems like the surface tension puddles up and its hard to lay it down. Whats a good thinner thats non-toxic. What is createx's retarder made out of? Anyone know?
