What is the best procedure to mix automotive paint?
Talk to the people at the paint store for better advise but
choose a reducer that matches your paint and temperature range and
I go with a 2 to 1 reducer to paint ratio using a 50psi regulator,
that works well enough for me.

What is car paint made of?
There are three basic ingredients in automotive paint: Resin Pigment Solvent The resin is the component that holds together the pigment in suspension, provides adhesion to the surface applied, and determines the quality and paint durability. The pigment comes in a powder form similar to concrete, and the average aftermarket automotive paint mixing system includes about 100 colors or toners to be able to mix formulas including metallic and pearl paint colors. The solvent is what provides the transferability, without the solvent the paint would be to thick in viscosity to transfer from container to container.
