This is a great money saving tip for making your own home made airbrush reducer. I don't dare pretend to have come up with this on my own. I have seen this formula all over the place on the internet.
Important Facts to know first
- This home made reducer formula is for use with water based airbrush paints only. It will not work with urethane based paints.
- This is just a money saving formula for practice projects. This formula is not a professional replacement for the actual brand reducer that is reccomended by the paint manufacturer.
You can use whatever amounts you want but the basic ratio and formula is this:
- 1 Cup of Water
- 1/2 Cup of Rubbing Alchohol
- 1/4 Cup Glass Cleaner (amonia works best)
- 5 Drops of Glycerine
Good luck. Flex the formula and let us know if your able to make it better.
