How do I mix white paint in with a green that is too dark to end up with a lighter shade in the same green family?

Anonymous asked 5 years ago

The Benjamin Moore dealer matched a dark green C2 color we had used previously in our family room but said he could not make it lighter as we asked him to do for use in the adjoining kitchen. He said we could do it ourselves by just adding white paint.

We are novices and have never mixed any paint before. How do we go about this? Do we have to buy pails to mix this in? How do we measure out each? How much white do we add to lighten it up perhaps 3 tones on a scale of 10? Help!
