International Brightside Paint

I want to repaint the hull and deck of my searider and have a pot of the Brightside paint in Rescue Orange colour.
Its too dark - too orangey red... to match my console etc.
Before I ruin some expensive paint...does anyone know if I can lighten this up by mixing in some Yellow or White Brightside paint?
Anyone familiar with paint mixing with this brand of paint?
thanks

I used this to paint an orange rib last year. It may look a lot different once its actually on the boat and has dried. Do a search for Osprey Eagle project and you'll be able to see how it turned out.

Im not sure I'd use brightside to paint a hull. It worked well on the deck and console but wasn't the most hardwaring paint in the world - I think you might find it looks tatty quite quickly with beaching/launching/general abuse.

I echo Tims post. I have used brightside on a Searider deck with good results. Don't forget to add non slip stuff.

I would not advocate using it on a hull. Seawater on a hull is just like fine sand paper. I sanded my hull down and polished it and got pleasing results.

If its got to be painted use Anti Foul. But it is expensive stuff.
