I decided to mix up my SF components tonight just in case I ran into an issue. I'd like to spray tomorrow so I'm hoping for a quick fix. My SF color component looks brownish. It definitely doesn't look like what PB_maxxx posted in his guide. Please check out the pictures and let me know if there's something I can add to fix this! I'd love to spray tomorrow.

Of note, I used the measuring spoons in the picture which I believe are dry measuring spoons. I don't believe dry ml is the same as liquid ml. Thoughts?

Donkasaurus;

that looks fine actually.
best thing to do is a water test. run a small stream of water... now dip the tips of your thumb and forefinger in the colorant and run it under the water... it should wash to grey.

if for some reason it still washes to red/brown... then use the 2.5ml spoon... and fill it with 2/3 blue and 1/3 green... and add it to the colorant.

that should take care of any push.
