Default Mixing metallic paints?

While I have time Warhammer wise on my hands I have converted up a Iron Warrior Lt/Champ and I am now moving into the Painting side of him (nearly) and need to know if mixing Boltgun metal for xample with Chaos Black (for shading reasons) works.
I am hoping it does seeing as I only have Tin Bitz and Boltgun metal, im out of my others.

It will work, its a bit duller to the eye, I would recommend dry brushing it. Mithril Silver is usually a highlight to Chainmail or Boltgun silver. But if you only plan on having it dull metal color it will show up.

it makes it look better i think as its not as shiny as there are less metallic particles just mix them like normal paints

Yep, it definitely works and looks pretty cool as well (like mixing, say, blue with silver.)
I laugh at the fools who thought Tau Online Chat Op is hard work! :shifty:
