    When I opened a couple of my paints they are really watery (and there not inks before you go thinking I'm an idiot) this is really annoying :realmad: because the paints run off the model and ruin it.

    Does anybody know how to stop this?

    i had the same problem with my liche purple, but it was kind of usefull, so i did nothing, but you could try evaporating the water off, and if it becomes too thick, you could add water.
    if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.

    There are two ways you can counter this problem. You can shake it up, and hope that it mixes together, or you can just put very light amounts of it onto whatever you're painting

    The pigments have most likely sunk to the bottom. Shake it, and if that doesn&#39;t work, stir with a toothpick. Some people put small steel balls in their paints, like in spray cans.

    As an absolute last resort you can add some thickening gel. You can buy it at most art stores or places that carry acrylic paints (Michaels, Hobby Lobby).

    It sounds like your paint isn&#39;t completley mixed, though.

    Shake it, shake it well. Then stir it. Then shake it more.

    I get this problem with the white, and it, for me, is not because I need to shake it.

    But, the first thing you do before ever even starting to paint is shake your colors very very very well. Then if you have the problem still (I actually like this problem and always water my paints slightly) then you need to dip your brush in the paint, dry it on a cloth until barely any paint comes off, and drybrush. That is almost all that you can do.
