When I first started out , like you I really wanted to get it just right and used the Zahn cup with a stopwatch also. Then it became a issue cleaning the thing after each batch but that was the price of following the learning curve.

After a while once the mix is how you like then you can touch a sample from your mixing stick to a nearby vertical suface and learn the rate a sample runs down after it leaves the paint stick. Soon you'll be able to recognise perfect viscosity weather it's primer or paint or clear ...

Good to see you having fun with it too... helping others is the best way to help ourselves
