Priming may also make a difference as it will give a better base for the paint to adhere to and you won't need as much paint just to make it all stick properly.
As to thinning regarding oceans suggestions. I know a lot of people swear by windex and some rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol can cause a LOT of issues with some types of acrylic paint chemistry. I have no experience with thinking warpaints though so can't say for certain how it would effect them. (One little cravat here. If you are using tamiya paints or vallejo liquid metal paints alcohol is the way to thin them as they are alcohol based paints.) Vallejo though is can turn them into sludge. The active ingredient that allows windex to be used as a thinner is ammonia. Which is actually a solvent for most acrylics. I don't personally like to use the same item I use to clean up my paints to thin them. As I said a ton of people use it though so that is more personal preference. It will speed up your drying time on your paints though.
I use plain spring/distilled water for watering down paints I'm going to brush on. If I'm making a wash out of paints or thinning them for airbrush use I tend to use a mixture of acrylic matte medium and flow-aid medium.
Not sure my painting is good enough to be giving advice yet. But Meh..
idc i think anyones opinions are allowed despite how "good" they are. However if you would like to share send some pictures!
