Okay so I wanted to expand my painting skillz and I noticed that my store carried Gauss, Gloss, and Retardant.
On the bottle it says slow dry, but exactly how does one use it to best effect?
Any enlightenment on this topic would be extremely cool.

i can tell how i use it, but as to whether thats "best effect"... well.
i use a flow enhancer/retarder, i think thats the same stuff you're talking about
if my paints are too thick i'll pour some enhancer straight into the pot and mix it up. also helps if your paints are dried out. when i'm mixing paints for blending, highlighting, whatever then i'll put out how much of each paint i want to use onto my pallette then put some flow enhancer in as i mix them up, usually about 1:1 ratio of enhancer to paint but it'll depend on your flow enhancer, what colours you're mixing up and your painting style. as you add more colour add more retarder to compensate. you can thin single colours down for a basecoat by doing the same thing.
your colours will stay liquid for longer, if they start to dry out you can add more retarder. paints will also behave a bit better than if you use water to thin them as there's less surface tension.
Kool stuff, i'll have to get my hands on some articles about that jazz.
Gauss? The hell is that? Does it turn your paint into magnetic coils?
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
Umm my bad. LoL I guess I ment gouche or whatever...I dont even think I spelt that right.
