Ah, good old Bob Ross, rest his soul. "We'll put some happy little trees right here." He could produce a masterpiece landscape in a half hour.
This is just re-branded general mineral spirits and can be used for any technique involving oils - washes, filters, dots, pin washing, etc. It's light and won't effect acrylic clear coats.

Thanks Matthew much cheaper than buying mig or AK stuff.I can get a 1000ml for as little as 9 and AK thinners are about 6 for 100ml
I've been watching some of Bob's videos on youtube the things he could do with a brush.

Many art supply stores have oder-less mineral spirits under various brand names.
