Mixing paint, (dumb que)

When I mix my topcoat acrylic urethane, w/my actuator ratio 1 tc to 4 actuator, if say it is off a little bit what is better to be off with more paint or actuator? Thanks, Dana

1 to 4 ?????????

Hi,i think you made a mistake,are you sure you dont mean 1 part catylst to 4 parts paint????????? you need to mix carefully,too much cat,it might setup before it flows out,too little,it might take forever to get hard........

Mix it EXACTLY as they say to mix it, don't be a "junior chemist". There are way too many things that can go wrong with painting let alone messing with what the manufacturer TELLS you how to use it!
