    What do you guys use to measure paint?

    Do you use just the one thing, or do you use one for paint,one for reducer, one for catalyst, etc...

    I use those plastic containers with the numbers on them.Its easier to keep track of what you add into them.Paint stores carry them.

    Use a combination cup from your paint house. It has the ratios right on it. Any other way is asking for math errors and poor ratios. They give them away at my paint shop.

    ask them to show you the proper way in how to use it, it is not self explanitory...........it is however foolproof when used properly.

    I made a chart that is taped to my work bench, it has all the ratios for what I'm using. Such as 4 to 1 an 2 to 1 in ozs. 1 to 1 I hope I can figure out.
