Dish soap

Recommended Posts

I see from time to time people talking about adding dish soap to paint and once adding it to pastel and water for weathering. My question 1 Why? 2 how much? 3 to water and paint mix or thinner and paint mix. Also willing to watch or read any videos or articles to get these answers. 

 

Thanks

While I would never add something to a new and/or still usable bottle of paint, I occasionally add a touch (not even a drop) of dish washer to water with which I thin paint before brush painting. 

The idea is to lower the surface tension of the water, nothing more.

 

While the link posted above is interesting, I would like to add that even though my future (bottle bought in 2004) yellow in the bottle, there are no detrimal effect on the kits I use and used it on.

 

Cheers

I gave it a try after reading the thread and it pretty much tells what not to do. No idea if it helped but what I was trying to do worked. Happy about that just not sure if it would help or not on something larger. 

 

Thanks for you replys
