Take a Red colored crayon (sorta wax marker). Start covering one table shade with just 1 stroke at a time. Cover the same colored shades and measure how much crayon is left. Let's say unused crayon = 1g and after coloring only 0.6g is left.

Take another colored crayon and follow the same process above for the 2nd shade. measure how much was used. let's say 0.5g.

So, the ratio of one shade to another will be (in this eg): 0.4/0.5....
