I got some Valejo washes at the hobby shop more or less on impulse.  I was thinking about using them on a current build, but then I saw this video on youtube that trashed the stuff.  The guy was brushing it on all over like you do a smudge wash, but I guess the color was separating or something.  I want to try to use it for panel lines.  I don't have anything to practice this on, so I was wondering if anyone has experience with these washes, and can give me a tip or two.

Thanks

Marc, I use these washes a lot, but I really dont reccommend you use them for panel lines as they wont come off and will stain the paintwork.
They are better used for localised washes around details in the cockpit or landing gear bays etc (for this kind of work they are excellent) for panel lines the best product I have found is Flory washes, they are clay based and if applied over a gloss coat are very forgiving and easy to remove. I have been using them for years on the panel lines on my builds and have never had any issues.

The Vallejo washes are really good, just not ideal for a sludge wash, they are great for figure painting too
