I use Vallejo paints. When I squeeze out a dab for use, I'll tahe a new lid and dip it into the puddle.

I've been doing this for years, many ,many years.
I usually give the whole lid one coat and half of the lid a second coat. That way you can see the opaqueness of the paint before it goes on a figure.

I paint my pots with 4 vertical stripes: bare lid, primer white, gray, black. Then I paint the lid horizontally with the internal color. Later I come back and swipe the top half with a second coat.

I started doing this a few decades ago when it became too much of a pain to find the color I was looking for among 200+ bottles.
