I was wondering if you could mix some ash with paint. This is on a palet of course. I'm just thinking that it might give a good 2nd degree burn look or add some depth to scorch marks. I'd rather not waste paint so I was wondering if anybody had some wisdom for me.

I wouldn't recommend it. First ash has little color when wet and doesn't keep it's ash texture, so will not carry over to your miniature as an ash look. It would be a rather uniform dull grey paste. Second, it would make your paint not adhere to your model as well, and be likely to flake or chip off.
If you want a thickened ash color paint, use an ash color paint. You can thicken it with a acrylic thickening medium (from art stores) or use white glue or school paste. If you want the mottled ash color, thicken two or three shades of black, white, or grey. Then swhirl them together on the palette without misxing them well. Then you can glob it on to the miniature. Keep in mind the paint will be very thick and carry that thick look over to the miniature.
If you really want to try painting ash on to your miniature, use a mix of white glue and ash to make the paste.
