I just tried using oil washes for the first time and screwed it up pretty badly. The mineral spirits I used ate through the wash, varnish, and base coat. I have no idea where I want wrong though.
1) Base + Prime
2) Krylon clear coat (it cured overnight)
3) Mig dark brown wash applied over entire model and let dry for a while
4) Gamsol odorless mineral spirits to clean off the excess
The cleanup step ended up taking away far more than I thought it would.
Any idea what went wrong? Does Gamsol not work with acrylics? Not enough gloss cote? To vigorous clean up?
Here is a pic of the end result... thankfully I was practicing on a throwaway Zvezda model.https://imgur.com/a/iGDF0
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
