Just so, can you use rubbing alcohol to thin acrylic paint?
Rubbing alcohol and mineral spirits can also be used to thin acrylic paints enough to remove the paint from objects such as paint brushes. Thin and extend your acrylic paint even more with a textile medium. You can also add a cap full of rubbing alcohol to mineral spirits as well to thin the paint even more.
Beside above, can you use vodka as paint thinner? Vodka contains the chemical toluene which is used as a paint thinner. Apparently it works best with acrylic paint not so much with enamels and lacquers.
Besides, what can be used as a paint thinner?
Mineral spirits or acetone are acceptable thinners that can be used as an alternative to traditional ones like turpentine. Both of these common household products can be used to thin oil-based paint. You can purchase either at your local hardware store or home center. Measure out the solvents to use them as thinner.
What do you add to acrylic paint to make it thinner?
The amount of water you add depends on the desired effect and the surface. Adding up to 30 percent water to acrylic paint thins it but still allows it to coat a surface. Adding 60 percent or more water creates a watery paint application called a wash.
