I've alway's shyed away from mixing primer or paints with compounds.
But that's just me I guess.
Since its almost always matching an existing for one reason or the other when Im doing it I mix the ratio as needed until desired viscosity is achieved. I start by scooping out 1/4 of the bucket and then start adding primer as needed. Its just something I learned from an old timer years ago and I have always followed suit. I did use water one time as a thinner and it seemed like there was more splatter and less stipple than when I use the primer additive. A friend of mine who is a builder around here dumps a gallon of pro mar 400 in every five and sells the ceilings as painted..

Why don't you do it Mix?
