Yep you have it right, the cup is marked to make it easy, it is all figured out. 8 parts paint them 1 part of whatever for thinner and 1 part hardener. you should be in business.

There should be a oz scale on the side of cup if you're confused. 8 oz paint, 4 oz reducer, 1/2 oz catalyst. Measure carefully as you don't want it too thin. After stirring check viscosity, to do this stir with stick, remove stick and watch paint run off while counting.. A count of 5 before the drips start is a good viscosity for the first coat. For a final coat I would thin just a bit to a 4 drip consistency for a final wet coat which would give the paint immense shine. Wait 20 minutes between coats for paint to flash over. JMHO...good luck
Pour paint through filter into paint cup!
I'll add to this...read the product information..some of these low VOC paints require 30 to 60 minutes flashover time..so what used to be one beer between coats is now....more
