Default Thinning Inks

Hi. Just wondering what you guys use to thin out your inks when needed. The inks I use are very thick concentrate, some are like molasses. I usually thin out with a little witch hazel, but here lately I've been thinning only when I need to in my caps with a bit of distilled water as I go. They tend to fly in pretty easily when thinned a bit, but sometimes I need it a little thick. What do you guys think?

I use Eternal so there isn't too much thining needed, I put a drop of water on the top of all my caps so they dont dry, but when I used Intenze I thined it with a little water... my boss uses wich hazel... works the same.

Yes i tryed the same thing a few years ago but a 60-40 mix of witch hazel and distilled water and found it works great, i prefer thicker inks as well and do similar when blending.
But what works for me may not work for others, depends on your style and the ink that your used to.

where would any one be without their pumas, and voodoo, and millions of pages of flash that everyone in the world only chose from the same three pages.
