Can you mix different paint types for interior paints?
Woodbridge Environmental Tiptophouse.com on Oct 07, 2014Not suggested unless your not doing anything really important. The two types of finishes will change how the final finish dries. Also if one is a water based paint and the other is not, you will be in for a big mess to clean up. Try a small amount of both in a Dixie cup mix and see what the results are. But I would only suggest that you mix paints of same type and finish.Helpful Reply
Marion Nesbitt on Oct 07, 2014Wouldn't go there. Happened to me by mistake. The resulting paint was awful to try to apply.Helpful Reply
Karen Gray-Plaisted on Oct 08, 2014No you can not. Even if you painted enamel first then want to paint with latex the two will not adhere to each other.Helpful Reply
Opal on Oct 09, 2014I'm sorry to say it, but no. You can however get what is called "tints-all". It's a small tube of colorant that you add to paint. I know it can be used for latex but I don't know if they make an enamel version. It's about $3.00 at a specialty paint store or amazon. Another way to go would be to call Lowes , Home depot or wherever you purchased it and ask if they will tint your latex for you and how much it would be. I have read that most paint stores will do this for free but have no first hand experience on it. Other places like Wal mart may also tint it for you. Good luck.Helpful Reply
