I pretty much went crazy with it, testing out different types of paints combines with different chemicals.
Most of the under painting was done in acrylic and then some permanent markers and oil.. A lot of mineral spirits, some acetone, water and other stuff... I got pretty cool effects from different combinations.
This really took me quite some time due to waiting time for everything to completely dry out before I could go back to work on it...
One of the coolest effect is mixing mineral spirits with acrylic, since they don't blend well, it leaves interesting stains... Depending on different acrylic brands, an even cooler reaction can occur, the paint will actually be moving in its little puddle till mineral spirits dry out..
but! important that if you try it out, keep in mind that those chemicals do not belong in your lungs, therefor work in a well ventilated room and let it dry somewhere outside (or just do everything outside!).
