Do I need to add water to paint?

Use Water to Thin Water-Based Paint. If stirring isn't enough and you do need to add liquid to your water-based paint to thin it out, try water before adding anything else. Add an ounce or two of water to the can and then thoroughly stir. Continue the process until the paint consistency is just right.
