Why do you want to use it? My thinking after reading about it is the combination of alcohol and the myristate might breakdown the integrity of the vinyl. I personally wouldn't risk it myself.

Thank you so much Georgeanne for your answer, I'm trying to find how to mix the Genesis paints, with some non toxic medium, because the air dry paints hurt me too.
Hugs, Ida

This is what I used when I was painting with Genesis. It didn't bother me and is supposed to be safer.

Hi Georgeanne, thank you so much again for your kind help (as always). Could you please tell me, which one of those products are you using?

When I use Genesis I use the Eco-House thinner. I like it the best to be honest. The other thinners are too strong and give me a headache.
