not mixing


Air-Valve Autobot!
I am having an issue mixing my reducers with my A/A paints. I have ....a/a 4010, 4011, w500.
I have tryed a mixer, both slow and fast speed. Shaking, adding in first, last, gradual, letting it sit,.....
Heres some pics of what I get.

75% trans red, 25% trans yellow. With 25% 4011 reducer.. This was mixed shaken ect in glass vials. I picked it up 30 min later and gave it a little swish and it showed the bubbles
This is starting to drive me nuts.......What am I doing wrong.
It does this in most colors or what ever reducer i use. Some worst than others. Some times after sitting for hour, it will be smoother.
These paints were bought 8 months ago...could they be spoiled?
It would be great to here any tricks you use to mix...
That is odd. I just reduce in the cup or i never look. Could it possibly be the paint base separating from the color and showing ad a suspended solid? The wicked base is the w200 trans base. Might be something worth trying to strain and see if they are gelatinous.

wierd indeed..I have aa from when it first came out and it still sprays fine.. the only thing I can thing of is either the paint got mixed with something else or (and this I would know nothing about) could it have froze?? I do not know if that is an issue with aa but it would be easy enough to find out
It would be interesting to look at a drop of this paint anda drop of fresh paint under a microscope
It seems like the bubbles could be reducer. I can slide one up the jar and break it only when it hits the edge. I will see if I can find my Color viewer and try to get a closer shot
