Mixing small amounts of 2k colors

If you have to do some spot repairs with 2k colors, it is not easy to get the correct mixing ratio e.g. 4:1. I will describe how I do this in my case.

Color mixing

Such small plastic cups you will find as a protection cup e.g. of hair sprays.

Color mixing

Make 5 marking points outside the cup with identical distance between each point. Now fill the color until it reaches the 4th mark and then add the hardener until it reaches the 5th mark and you will get an exact mixing ratio of 4:1.

Alternatively I do use such type of measuring spoons. They are normally used for cooking.

Color mixing

Just bend the front 90 degrees and you have a perfect set of measuring spoons. 4 spoons of color and one hardener gives you also the mixing ratio you need.

Here you see the measuring spoon in action.
