FYI It's not really a good idea to mix two different brands of paint anyway.
They don't always mix well.

> Well...of course you can do that...but, in general these are student grade
acrylics anyway. From where I sit, I'm thinking that a sprayed finished
coat of acrylic final gloss varnish will make the finished paintings look
great anyway, and solve the problem at the same time. For what a better
quality red might cost and in the quantity to service all the students,
you'd be cheaper to go with the spray. I went thru only one full can ($4--)
of spray for roughly 20 students. (best if you spray it).
