Medium Recipe - Volume or Weight??

Hey guys - wondering if someone can help me out re. mixing Marks medium recipe.. I have all of my supplies and shadow boxes and lights etc. and I'm just about to mix my medium and then my paints.

I haven't been able to find an answer as to whether I mix the parts by weight or volume however?

I imagine there is a difference between weight and volume for things like Venice Turpentine v/ Mineral Spirits and I really don't want to get this wrong before I start!!

Really appreciate any help you can give!

    Volume is the way to go. Millilitre measurements are easier. Start with your smallest component quantity you have available, usually VT and proportion out multiples and fractions of the VT..
