    Paint Thinner idea.....!!

    I was thinking about the paint thinner wheel the other day.
    Now when you turn it it simply goes from maximum texture to no texture...
    I think it'd be great if it went as follows:

    0% thinner = 100% texture, and 100% opaque
    50% = 0 texture, and 100% opaque
    100% thinner = 0 texture and Clear...as if clear water.

    Of course it would need all the other percentages inbetween also...

    That way as you add thinner to the paint it takes it through the natural
    progression of what paint does when thinned...
    It would also give us a way to do watercolorish washes, for underpaintings
    or water color like images....

    Does this sound useful to anyone else?

    That would be sweet indeed, especially with natural media color blending.

    Plus a lighting effect that makes oil glazes shiny and water colour
    washes matte?
