Function of Reducer Paint must be liquid to allow for application. A urethane reducer allows you to adjust the consistency of the paint to make it easy to spray on the car surface. The reducer then evaporates, allowing the paint to set and harden.
What can I use instead of lacquer thinner?
Mineral spirits or acetone are acceptable thinners that can be used as an alternative to traditional ones like turpentine. Both of these common household products can be used to thin oil-based paint. You can purchase either at your local hardware store or home center. Measure out the solvents to use them as thinner.
