Default Thinning Parma Paints

Is there a consensus for thinning Parma paints? What do you thin with and what ratio? Thanks for any info.

Sounds good for the next time, but the Parma paints are already purchased and sitting on the work bench.

30-70 rate. 30% water 70% paint. Thin coats, test it out on cardboard to see how it will spray.
i use faskolor and some need thinned from time to time. Might want to try a 20 to 80 and add as needed.
