That's close enough for me. There's a big difference between a few drops added to a bottle full and a few drops added to half a paint cup full.

I use a paint cup with the airbrush. I add the base color paint up to the halfway mark then add the drops of additional color. I have no idea what the ratio would be. I just wing it each time. Once the cars are weathered, it’s often difficult to discern different shades of box car red. There are several images showing before and after weathering on this blog post.

Eric, when it came to painting, you suggested Vallejo rust with a few drops of scarlet red added. Add a few drops of red to how much rust? A bottle?


I like Vallejo and have been using it for some time.
