Does anyone have a good "recipe" for Primer Red using Tamiya paints?

Mix red and brown until you get a match.

I tried that and it never works. Too messy. I use a lighter to ignite my smokes.

I use 1/2 teaspoon Tamiya XF10 Brown to a Whole Bottle of Tamiya XF7 Red, If you watt a deeper color use a whole Teaspoon of the Brown
If you have seen my 1/16 Panther build here that is what I used for the Red Oxide primer.

This is so funny.
You have a reference or match for the Teaspoon?
Recipe made you use the Teaspoon, am I right?

Will remember this one, it makes me smile for the rest of the evening.

Kind regards,
