I agree with Adantessr on this. Over reducing will make the paint lay
out smoother, but not necessarily glossier. To get lots of gloss, the
clear resin in the paint needs to rise to the top of the film, and the
pigmented solids sink to the bottom. Too much reducer hinders this
effect. It's best to do it as described above......
