Jo Sonja - Dropper Bottles and Prethinning

    I just picked up some jo sonja acrylics and I've read others mentioning how they put them into dropper bottles. For those of you who do that, do you pre-thin them at all with water or medium to keep in the bottle? They are quite thick and don't really come out as "drops" from my dropper bottles.

    I use JoSonja paints, they are a bit bulky to transport to my club so I bought some dropper bottles and stainless ball bearings to mix them, I simply use de ionised or distilled water reclaimed from my dehumidifier, I never thin acrylics with tap water. Also look on eBay for nail varnish laquer shakers, they are battery and mains, most don't come with a mains adapter so you also need to source one online, they are great for shaking Vallejo, etc. And you get a nice matte finish instead of partly mixed paint which invariably ends up drying with a satin or semi gloss finish.

    I put in just enough water to get it to flow. I also put in a drop of retarder to keep it from drying out (just in case).
