Can you use Oil colors?? Please answer :D
Oil paints can be thinned with a mixture of turpenoid (or other solvent) and some extra some drying oil (such as linseed oil). <br><br>The solvent helps it dry faster and run thinner, the oil keeps it from getting under bound and also helps it run thinner. <br><br>Try a 50-50 mix and mix with the paint until it is the right consistency.
No, the oil based paint will not mix with the water.
you spelled beautiful wrong, no offense
I dont think that is very offensive... No offense
like shadec said, you can't use oil paints. sorry
