Finally I achieved it...The Duco paint has been diluted

The Problem with Duco paint was getting it into a think liquid to enable painting work easy. The type of paint can be made into a dilute solution either by mixing Turpentine or by adding a Thinner. Because the paint is a very costly one I can not afford to waste even a 100 grams of it. Yesterday when I tried to paint on the shelf I could not do it. Because when I dipped the brush to take some paint out separately into a cup it started coming out like small threads the other ends handing to the paint container. So I felt it almost impossible to collect it separately. First I used Turpentine and get some paint spoiled. Later contacted another professional painted and he advised me to dilute it using a Thinner. So again I waited for the shop owner as he was out for his lunch. I waited for an hour and finally, when he came I bought a liter of Thinner spending about Rs.120 /-. I used this thinner and dropped some paint into it. Awesome. It mixed well. I felt very happy and started painting it. Everything was good. Suddenly I noticed that the paint started becoming thick again I again mixed some Thinner. It became thin again and I continued the work. It continued for an hour. Thinner is nothing but a spirit. When we add it to the paint it starts evaporating from the paint and the paint becomes thick. I needed to work quickly. Another good aspect of this paint is that it dries very quickly. One need not keep the article in the open air for drying it. The moment you paint at one end and starts painting at the other end it dries up. Very very fast. The surface will be extremely smooth and more over it will be very glossy. So this is the work done for today which was totally a success.
