mixing white enamel for spraying

I needed some more wet-process opaque white. Previously I'd bought the enamel pre-mixed as a wet slop. But in this case I thought I'd give mixing it myself a go. It's a bit cheaper as there's less weight for postage.

The ratio is 8 parts (by weight) of dry enamel powder to 3 parts of boiling water as per W G Balls website.
