    I'm not really sure about the mixing part, but if you find a colour that you want to save, what you do is have the image saved that you want to take the colour from (in jpeg) import it into ArtRage by going to File>Import Image File, you then import it, and select the colour picker tool which looks like an eyedropper, you then hover it over the colours you want to sample and one at a time you would select the samples pop up in ArtRage, then with the colour selected in your colour wheel, click Add Sample, give it a name, and it's as simple as that.

    Or you could download themanufacturer colour swatch samples

    Mix your paint on a canvas without any grain (reduce roughness to 0).

    Tools->Color Options->Custom Color Picker Collection

    In the dialog click "New" If it is the wrong size compared to your palette, cancel, and zoom in or out so that your palette is the right size, and try again.

    One thing you could do if you are doing this often is to create a stencil in the same shape as the color picker, and use that to stay within it while mixing your palette, before using the custom picker. Also, unless you want the canvas color as one of your pickable colors, make sure to cover your palette entirely with "pigment".

    You can also resize and rotate your custom color picker... like a real palette.
