Try mixing a small amount of each and see how they act together before mixing larger amounts. I should think things are fairly compatible.

Yes, and it's a good way to come up with new colors!

I have never had a problem mixing powder paints but I usually wasn't happy with the end result color wise. Like ctom says, work with a small amounts of paint when you start mixing and matching colors. You'll have less wasted paint to deal with if you're not happy with the color you end up with.

You sure can - I've always had to mix a little more or add some clear to clean it up but it works.  Is there a certain color you're trying to mix??  There's a thread on www.jigcraft.com http://www.jigcraft.com/jigcraft/showthread.php?tid=5961 with some really nice mix's.  You'll have to register to see the photo's of some of them though.
