Thinner for hobby paints

Plenty of paints require thinner in order to be properly used, either in brush or airbrush, and furthermore, we need to take into account which type of paint we're dealing with to ensure compatibility between paint and thinner.

Ideally, we'll use the manufacturer's own thinner but there are some that are universal. The Mr. Hobby Levelling Thinner is compatible with all kind of lacquer paints and some solvent-based acrylic paint such as Tamiya. Vallejo Airbrush Thinner works with all kinds of water-based acrylic thinner.
