Problems mixing WN wmo.

Hi I was wondering if anyone had solutions to some of the problems i am experiencing with my WN water oils. I am finding that some colors wont mix, eg viridian green, yellows and blues, blues and browns. There is a lot of separating and sticky clumping of 1 color. I am primarily using them for monoprinting, I thin them out a lot with water.
I cant change my technique so thin paint has to stay. Considering another brand? but in NZ classico is my only other easy option.
Sorry if this has been posted before, many thanks for your time Isaac

Try thinning with Linseed Oil or other medium. Despite what WN says, water should only be used for cleanup.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply but I really cant, paint mixed with oil is a very different look to mixed down with solvent. I might try replacing with classico when colours run out, also a few people here talk about a specific thinner. Will see if i can buy some.
Cheers Isaac

Ok, since you mentioned that you can only buy 2 brands there, have you considered buying on the internet from a known site like Dick Blick? That way you might be able to try different brands.
