We all wish it was that easy.
Mixing up an automotive color is a cumbersome process.
Most older paint shops add pigments by weight, based on the forumula.
here is how is goes.
Put the can on the scale and pour in the binder to specified weight.
zero the scale and start pouring in the pigments to weight.
until the process is done.
A heavy pour on one thing and a short pour on another can give you a variation of the color you want then lighting is another issue,
If the guy mixing the paint is partially color blind that is another story, plus base colors underneath are another story.
Everytime you have paint mixed you hold your breath and hope for the best even if it is the same guy mixing it everytime.
But the newer the paint usually the easier it is to come close.
