Speed typing fail..

Step 3.. Add a tiny amount of tint. (The tint I use has a spread rate of 200 to 1) and mix the tint into your paint. BE VERY CAREFUL. DO NOT GET IT ON CLOTHES OR NEAR YOUR EYES

Step 1.. grab a tin of clear paint.
Step 2. get a few jars of tint, what ever colours you want to use.
Step 3.. Add a tiny amount of tint. (The tint I use has a spread rate of 200 to 1) and mix it in to tint paint. BE VERY CAREFUL. DO NOT GET IT ON CLOTHES OR NEAR YOUR EYES.
Step 4.. 5... 6.. 7.. 8.. add coats of paint and a light sand back with 360 grit paint between every  coat to get smooth finish,
It took about 7 coats to build up the blue.
Same with the purple.
I will use the green tint in my next build. :)

Nice trio Hag.   Hey, can you please explain the process for the color on the turquoise blue one?  I am thinking about doing a neck in a blue stain.
