Doesn't it recalculate if you go over on a component?

I really need to get this hooked up. Our best mixing gal is our worst maths gal.

That's how those pint mixes end up two gallons!
I visualize the Three Stooges working as barbers trying to even up a mustache or haircut, "recalculating" with scissors!

Haha. At least you can always add, but can only take away so much.

When I first started I had many a gallon of gawd-dammit-brown. Because browns were always the hardest to match.

Yes it'll recalculate if you over add a component.  Recycle function too but that's not used too much here.

Pretty sure we still have a bucket of Pantone Baby Poop C on the shelf somewhere.

but that only works if you put more of the first color in, say the mixing white.  Because if you put more of the 3rd color in, then it would calculate to add more of the 1st and 2nd?

That's correct.

You must have our Baby Poop C! We had about 5 gallons of it few years back. I kept saving it thinking we'll need it. Finally got rid of it and did not even realize it wa gone until reading this post. Must be 5 years now!
