Ok, I'm attempting to apply a wash to the cloak of my Ethereal (to shade it), but when it dries it sortave just collects and makes little splotches instead of shades...
What am I doing wrong?

You most likely are either
A: not using a thin enough wash
b: The surface tension of the wash is a bit much, try adding a drop or 2 of liquid soap to the water you thin your paints with... it reduces the surface tension. You can also use commercially available "flow-aid" products, but soap works fine.
You might also be applying too much wash. wick some of the liquid off the brush so that it doesn't pool on the model. It should both dry faster and not leave spots everywhere. It might take you a few applications to tint the color to your liking however.

I mix my inks with a bit of water, depending how translucent I want the effect. I then add a bit of dish washing liquid, only a dab or drop. It breaks the surface tension, and will allow the ink to congregate in the crevices and low parts. No more tide marks from inking!

Also you may have handled the mini too much ,which will result in it becoming greasey
