    Distilled water is a cheap method of thinning paints and gets a better result than tap water. You can buy it form Halfords for £2 per litre or so.

    Thinner such as Tamiya, valejio and lifecolour can work but you must experiment. Generally stick with the same make of thinner as the paint you are using. I have used ctadel with tamiya thinners for good results.

    Yes just use tamiya thinner in place of water.
