I bought 5 gallons of mistinted paint. The color is a light brown/tan. I would like to make it darker.almost a chocolate color...Can I just buy a gallon of dark brown paint and mix it all together and see if it comes out dark?

You can certainly can add a dark brown paint to darken an existing lighter tan color. However, if the lighter color is mixed from a white tint base, you will be adding a lot of paint before you make a significant difference. At some point, you have to ask if it would not simply be easier and little or no more expensive to just buy the dark brown color you wished to reach in the first place!
Hope this has helped.
