fiberglass resin

is what you use to thin any body filler.Its called styrene and its what already in the BF. I use it when i get to the bottom of the can as thats when the BF gets thick.

In the summer I put it out in the sun, in the winter I put it next to the wood stove. It makes it easy to spread.

You'll have to get it at a automotive paint store, or order it online. Maybe NAPA will have it?
