1 gallon of pigment plus reducer which with most paint lines will be a gallon making 2 gallons of sprayable material. You’ll have a few ounces left over. Clear is about the same; some mix 2:1 clear to catalyst, others are 2 clear to 1 hardener plus 1 reducer. Long story short you’re going to want 1 gallon of clear product plus whatever it mixes with.

30 gallon not going to be enough, get a 60. I used a 30 to prime but I came out really rough, upgraded to a 60 gallon and it’s just better all around.
