I'm using Auto air paint.... If I reduce it by 10:1 and make a bit up, will it keep in the bottle or will it go off and be unusable?
 
No good buddy, it'll keep for a little while in the fridge , a matter offew weeks but after that the polymers break down and 5 he paint becomes unusable, the water and paint separate and don't mix together well after
 
ok thanks.. Hard to get 0.1 of a drop, daft but it is all you need sometimes!

Sure you can. I use a piece of scrap Yupo paper as a sort of mixing palette. Put a drop of the paint on the scrap paper/plastic, then dip a toothpick in the drop of paint and stir it into your paint cup. This is how I match transparent paints directly in the cup.
