Can anyone share their experiences using drying retardants? What brand do you use? How much do you mix in with the paint? Are there any secrets or tricks?
I'd like to try some so I can give blending a go but I'm not very sure how it works.
I use vallejo glaze medium together with water which works pretty well for me. It keeps the puddle from drying on my palette and makes thinned paint flow better. At higher medium/water ratios it makes detailing and drybrushing more manageable because the paint doesn't dry on the brush and the transparent medium dilutes the paint, letting you do thin highlights without having the paint run everywhere. I have used it for wetblending, with decent (I think) results.
So I quite like it!
