My off-line email should have answered that but for the benefit of others:
For a wash I use one drop of paint to six drops of water to which I
add a tiny tiny sliver of soap. You can also cut the water with a few
of drops of alcohol, or, believe it or not, Future Floor Wax works too.
I guess it depends on the effect you are trying to achieve. A very
thin wash will only stain depressed ares like between boards, a
thicker wash will do the same but will stain the rest of the car too.
The good thing about acrylics is you can just wipe or rinse off what
you don't like.
