I don't know about that... I worry about the mixture crazing. I mostly 
use two glazes, one of which is a clear and I add all kinds of colours 
to small amounts of it, as in "let's just chuck some of this green stain 
in here and see what I get" so I mix those leftovers all the time. 
Mostly they come out some kind of blue! The worst thing about mixing 
lefties is that sometimes you get something really nice and then you go 
nuts trying to get it again.
