It says if you want an orange peel finish to use a small bit of water? does anyone have any actual amounts used rather than me just guessing?

It's just a guess. It doesn't require a lot. You can always add more but can't take any away. I added about 1/2 cup of a rattle can cap.

Yes. A lot comes down to user preference. Add a bit and try it. You can always thin it out a bit more on the second coat if you choose.

do you have any pictures of the finish you got with that amount of water?

I can dig some up but roller and technique also come into play. I could take the exact same consistency product and end up with two entirely different results based on which roller I used and what technique I used to apply it.

Bass addict is spot on. You can get different finishes depending on how you roll it out. I used the application roller that was recommended when I bought the druatex. At first glance it would appear it would give a super rough texture, but the more you roll it the smoother it gets. I would start by just using it without water on a couple of pieces of scrap wood and play around with it. Here is a finish with no water and the texture roller:

This is similar to the roller I used:

Here's one I did with a 1/2" nap for a more aggressive finish.
