Mixing Cans of Paint

Scott Edwards asked 4 years ago

A nonprofit whose budget is tight wonders if it would be possible to take donations of partial cans of white paint, mix them all together to come up with four or five gallons of paint and then use it.

Issues of course are:

1. Mixing of latex/oil – which I don’t think you would want to do.
2. Gloss/semi-gloss/satin/flat – which I have no idea if you can mix.
3. Different brands which have different formulations.
4. Paint Failure – will such a mix stand up over time or fail miserably shortly after application?

Thanks!
