    Default Is there a less smelly/nasty thinning agent I could use other then Turpentine?

    I hate the smell of it and really do not want to use it. So, is there an alternative out there?

    thx

    Mineral Spirits, still smells but not as bad. Test a small batch for compatibility first.

    There is odorless mineral spirits too. I know Ace Hardware sells it.

    I use paints that I can thin with water. Hardly any smell at all.
