Primary Color Mixing

I finally got around to crunching the numbers for the color slurry mixing.   First, I looked at the paint chip color that I wanted to match, then I guessed at the primary color percentage.  The next thing I did was take a 3ml dropper, holding it at a 90 degree angle to the scale, I measured how many drops of each color were in 1 gram.   From there, I figured the ratio of slurry colors, then I divided it to the lowest drop, so that I could save on the precious slurry mixture.     The summer algebra class came in handy for this part of my project!
