Stop by lowes or home depot and get a measuring container with a lid. It will help you out during your project. The quantities are printed on the side of the cup so it's really easy to get the precise ratios your looking for. For the most part people use 1:1. Use the lid to seal the batch for later use and you won't have to mix up new ratios each time because your paint dried up Wink
