Are asking if you can tint your own paint? Like buy a can white and then buy the tints you want to make the color you want?

Paint stores have sold bottled universal colorant in pint plastic squeeze bottles for years, although they are getting mor rare as stores have taken over the function of eye-matching colors, which is getting to be a lost art in the field. Do not look for tints in the box stores. BTW: tinting your own paint is not a great idea, unless you are really experienced at it.

Agree Mr. Paint I would rather just go to my KM store and have them do it for me. That way I am happy!
