Did some pinwashes, but I have a question; All the pigments from the oilpaint was laying at the bottom and not mixed up good. Do I need to get another type of white spirit?
Currently I'm using the brand Mimeri, don't know if it the right one...

OK there is always varnish for the rescue but that is something I like to avoid in my work ...
On another note personaly I do not like to practice on scrap if not the exact model ... but then again everyone has his own way ... what can surely save you working on scrap is not to start the job allover again ... but I never learn!
