Re: Floquil Glaze

Because Floquil is an enamel, it can slowly polymerize in the bottle... this is what
causes the graininess. It also happens to acrylic enamels. In each case the best way
to prevent it is to measure out the paint you're going to use, and throw out any left
overs, and never return any paint to the original bottle.
But, absent those problems, then adding thinner should make it flow again. A couple
drops of retarder helps too.
When the paint gets grainy I keep them but only as brush paint and washes for weathering.
Never try to airbrush them. It won't be pretty!
I have a stash of this material, which at one time was identified as Floquil paint without any pigment, i.e. only the carrier and solvent. Does anyone know whether or not this is true?
