    Do you mean because its a full tin ? Best use two tins and pour half into the empty one while you thin the main one. Then pour the first into the second and give a good stir. Pour them back and too into each other several times. Obviously you will have too much paint to fill one tin but i would assume you are going to then pour into a pant tray or scuttle.
