I have a couple of cans of linen white paint on hand. Can I change the color to a different color? If so, how?

Changing the color of your paint is not easy. I am assuming that you are talking about a latex paint. Even with an oil based paint, changing the color is not easy. Paint stores have colorants which, for the most part, very concentrated paints, which are added to regular paint, in certain proportions to achieve a desired color. your paint store clerk has formulas for all of his/her colors. If you have a friend in the paint store business, he can do lyou a favor and tint it for you but for you to do it is hard. The only thing you could do is to have a paint like the one you have only at a different color and then start mixing them together. This can get messy and you will not be happy with the results. Your best bet is to go to a paint store and find the color you want and have it made there.
