Yes, FolkArt Sign Shop Stencil Paste will mix well within the colors of each variety set.  Simply squeeze out a small amount of each color to be mixed. Begin by adding a small amount of the darker color into the lighter color, then continue adding small amounts of the darker color, a little at a time, until the desired color or value is achieved. It is recommended to use a palette knife to mix two or more colors when creating a custom color. 

No, FolkArt Sign Shop Multi-Surface Chalkboard Paint should not be mixed with water, mediums or other acrylic paints.  Mixing will destroy the properties that make this paint work as a chalkboard surface.
