    The paint formula for any color will vary depending on the manufacturer. The tints and ratios for Arctic White in Glasurit single stage urethane are as follows...

    TINT......Color..........Amount

    M0.......Mixing clear....15.2
    M60.....White ............78.5
    A136....Black.............3.7
    M5.......Ochre.............2.4
    M146...Yellow.............0.2

    This would only make a small amount and you would need to multiply these amounts to get the quantity you want.

    The other color (White Sand) is only shown in Limco tints. If you want the Limco formula for this let me know and I'll get it. I'm not a big fan of Limco, probably because I'm accustom to using Glasurit which is a much higher quality material. Glasurit is BASF's top of the line urethane while Limco is the bottom of their line and is much more difficult to work with.

    For a quart of White Sand you would mix the following grams of material.

    Tint.......Color.....................Amount
    LB900........Bright White............731.5
    LB707........Ochre......................20.2
    LB402........Ebony......................5.3
    LB303........Yellow/Green............1.0
    LB806........Green/Gold...............1.0
    LB701........Bright Yellow.............1.0
    LMCI..........Mixing Clear..............299.6

    There is no code for "Ermine White" but they do have a Glasurit code for "Ermine" which is as follows.......

    Tint.............Color..............Amount

    M0..............Clear..............15.5
    M60............White..............72
    A126...........Mixing Black....4.8
    A172...........Scarlet............3.6
    M5..............Ochre..............2.7
    M40............Yellow..............1.4

    I would mix and spray a small amount of each to make sure it's the color you want before purchasing a larger amount.
