Not a good idea. When I first started painting and trying to be frugal in the 1980s I tried several things that all had bad results:

1. Mixing food coloring with craft paints (they faded within weeks).

2. Mixing house paint and craft paints (I had a gloppy mess on my hands)

3. Mixing rit dye with craft paints (it was powder and water and it was awful.

4. Mixing liquid shoe polish with paint (just NO--very runny and goopy)

I decided then it was not a good idea to mix things that were not likes. Now, you can mix different brands of the same craft paint--like oils with oils and acrylics with acrylics.

To get gray to be black, you would be best off just buying black. You will use it for everything if you are going to paint. I loved mixing it with my lighter colors to get interesting blends. My staples were the primary colors--well worth it if you are going to paint something special!

Blessings!!

Try to keep with the same type of medium. If you try things like hair dye, it will separate over time and not bode over well. Try to get a plain black paint.
