I often find that GW's paints are so watery that i have to put on 7-10 coats to get get a solid color. This is really annoying on tanks. Any advice on how to fix this problem?
I actually find them too thick, so i need to water them down
Which primary colours are u trying to apply on ur tanks? GW sells 2 different types of collours. The once with white caps on are FOUNDATION paints which go on amaizing. If ur haveing problems applying paint to ur tanks try one of the foundation paints on first. Example is if you want to apply YELLOW on something u dont start with Sunburst yello, Golden Yellos or Bad Moon Yellow. You first start off with IYANDEN DARKSUN which is called foundation paint..then work your way to other yellows.
Do they still take 2 layers if u use white primer?
sorry to jack this thread, but i was wondering do you guys water down your foundation paint? or should you not do that?
I do always, but just a little bit of water. I find the consistency a bit to heavy for my taste. It depends on ur painting stile.
It's a good idea to always thin your paints, especially the foundations, I find.
