A number of questions have surfaced as to what "units" I commonly measure in. Most often I use a standard glass eyedropper with a 1/16 opening. This makes my unit of measure the "drop" or 1/216 of an ounce. Most of the formulae listed below are listed as "part" or "parts". They could actually be any unit you choose, just so long as you use the same unit each time, be it milliliter (or cubic-centimeter) or even gallon (for those of you guys out there modelling on a 1:1 scale who need REALLY large quantities of material).

All colors bearing the prefix "PF" or "PG" are Floquil Polly-S colors. The remaining colors bearing prefixes "R" are standard Floquil colors.
