Ok I give up . When someone says "reduce the paint 70%", how does that work? I thought this was simple, but phrasing it as a percentage is not helping me. If I have 1 drop of paint, how many drops of reducer to achieve 70% reduction? would it be .7? Is 1 part paint & 2 parts reducer 50% or 200%? Side note, Math has never been my strong point; words yes, numbers no. As a kid I could cuss someone out in 5 different languages, but couldn't count to 20 without taking my shoes off . As always, your help is appreciated.
