Any way to turn satin to flat?

I picked up a couple gallons of mis-mixed paint at the hardware store for pennies. Only problem is that it's satin instead of the flat that I want. Is there anything I can add that will take away any shine?

Flat paint...and alot of it

If you like the color, you could use it as a first coat then second coat with the same color in Flat.
