Mixing paint for airbrushing

When looking at build threads, it seems usual to cut paints with white or black or another colour, in order to achieve different tonal variations.

Given the small quantities of paint used when airbrushing, how do you accurately measure each of tthe different colours to make the mix ?

Is it as simple as using a dropper and counting the drops ?

Adrian.

That's the way I roll. Like you said it's a small amount of paint in the airbrush.

Thanks KT

I've ordered a whole bunch of micro pipettes, so I'll see how I get on with them.
