    Hi Marie as long as it is the same type of paint (trying to mix an oil based paint with a water based paint will NOT work) you can mix away!

    Sure. As long as the paints are all latex or all oil there is no reason you cannot. Be tough to match if you need more.

    Yes you can as long as you mix water based with water based and oil based with oil based paint.

    Sure. Oil to oil. Latex to latex. Try a little to see if you like color results.

    Do you mean mix them physically like blending them together...or do you mean mixing paint styles/finishes in combination with each other? My response depends on your answer.

    If you are talking about different kinds of paint, It is best to mix latex with latex and oil-based with oil-based.
