Not recommended- but will probably not be a problem. Why? And what paints?

Mixing Paint


Save it and use it as a primer. Paint and primer ( despite what some large box stores will tell you) do different things. They will mix, but neither will do what they were intended to as well, and you now have a mix that doesn't go with anything.
once again, what are you going to use it for?
