isdiam2,

 

The safest way to know with what and how to thin paint is to read the label. It will tell you what kind of solvent with which to thin  and with which to clean up. 

 

Paints generally fall into 4 categories: 

 

   Oils - generally thinned and cleaned  with mineral spirits

 

   Latex/acrylic - thinned and cleaned up with water

 

   Lacquers - thinned  and cleaned up with lacquer thinner

 

   Shellac - thinned with denatured alcohol, cleaned with either alcohol or ammonia

 

The above is a generalization. Read the labels for specifics!
