How To Tone Down Acrylic Paint??

walt1July 10, 2010

Hello Folks,

I accidently poked a hole in the sheetrock in living room.....patched hole-no problem,but when using some paint I had left over..noticed that it was a gloss acrylic and existing walls had a satin finish.?????

Is it possible to "tone" down the gloss to match the satin finish? I tried using small amout of water but still glossy.

Thanks Walt1
