For some colours (esp red and yellow) I undercoat brown as it is only way to stop the underlying paint colour showing through. Depends on the paint and its opacity, even VJ paint is pretty patchy in coverage. No I don’t water it down, why on earth would you do that?

I’m a black/grey undercoater in the main.

Of course back in the days of Airfix figures and Humbrol enamels we didn’t do any of this stuff. Just slap that paint on.
