No idea, I shoot them from a spray can. the product is such good quality, that I have never gotten a run and coverage/finish is absolutely smooth.

If I had to guess, I would say the same ratio most of your paints are mixed to...approximately the consist. of milk.  Primer does not have to go on thick, nor absolutely/opaquely cover the model below (especially if there is a lot of fine detail).

Geoff,

I buy 6 or 12 cans at a time (a box/case worth) on Ebay (vendors out of Japan or China/Taiwan)...takes about 15 to 30 days....or if in a hurry I will buy individual cans at one of the LHS that carries it (Pegasus Hobbies, Brookhurst Hobbies, Warbird Hobbies), or my other frequent source is greatmodels.com online (which  was just recently acquired by Sprue Brothers http://spruebrothers.com/ .....have not dealt with the new ownership..so don't know if they carry it, or what their service is like)
