f. Paint Mixing. You must mix (stir) primers and paints thoroughly. This will ensure that the
paint pigment, which usually settles to the bottom of the container, and the paint vehicle are thoroughly
mixed together. Mix primers and paint by boxing or using power-operated equipment.
(1) Boxing Use boxing when you are mixing paint by hand. Boxing consists of pouring the
paint back and forth from one container to another. To do this, follow the procedures listed in Figure 2-
4, page 2-18.
