Can portland cement be mixed with latex paint?
i suppose, but it would make some pretty nasty paint. If your trying to make a color coat for stucco or something, a dry colorant available at a masonry supply store would be a much better option. What exactly are you trying to accomplish? might be able to provide a better answer

Th e short answer is NO! oil (alkyd) and water (latex) do not mix! there are however coating additives that are available that will allow this BUT only if they are incorporate…d into the original coating!
Enamel paint can only be mixed with latex paint if the latex paintalso has enamel in it. If the latex paint is oil based then it cannot be mixed with enamel paint.
If you want to keep your paint color pure and cover your object and/or project with 1 or 2 coats, I wouldn't, it sounds like your trying to eliminate a step, I know they… do it with stain and polyurethane but not with paint and poly. I think as long as its water-base poly & water-base paint (latex) its possible, try 1oz of paint, 1oz of poly and mix well and try it on a test piece to see if its to your liking. Good-Luck!
Yes you can. Latex refers to what base the paint is. Latex is water based and therefore can be cleaned up with water. Oil based paint is cleaned with a chemical. Flat refers t…o the sheen of the paint. Flat is dry and chalky looking. The next step up is eggshell which has believe it or not has the shine like an eggshell. It is the most common interior wall paint. Anything above that gets shiny. The more shine the more the flaws in the wall show. You do get flat enamel paint so you have to check if the coating is a water based or solvent based coating before you even consider mixing!
Yes, since both are water based paints you can mix the to together.
You usually can. I've done it many times and only one occassion when they wouldn't mix properly.
Yes you certainly can. It provides a good bond and also flexes with temperature changes. Over time you will need to replace it. A cement dye may be preferable.
mortor is a mix of cement & sand in a ratio suited for a specific purpose. For plastering walls a ratio of 1 part cement to 6-8 parts sand is used depending on the strength r…equired. For brick laying a ration of 1:4 is normally used again depending on the strength required.
The question is unclear. There are three types of paint by base: oil, water, and epoxy. None of the three can be mixed. Rather, one can mix the any two or three of them, but t…he result would be unusable for painting.
No, latex paint is made of water and polyurethane is oil based. If you know the saying, "Oil and water don't mix."
Yes. Read the instructions. ANS 2 - You can, but it has limited uses as it gets quite brittle.
No. It will alter the colour and properties of the paint - but you can buy premixed paint and primer at the store that is designed to work together.
Yes it can. You'll end up with a more opaque stain.
Not if the melamine paint is oil (alkyd) based.
The short answer it yes, it will work. However, solid latex stains are designed to penetrate the wood and to show the texture of the wood, while paints are more adhesive and d…esigned to provide a protective thick film that does not necessarily show the texture of the wood any longer once it has dried. If you do mix the two, it will probably last a little longer than solid stain, but will not be as durable as a regular floor paint.
