Creature Makeup - Multi-Piece Silicone Prosthetic Application Joel Harlow

I thought I noticed Joel never stirring his colors within the airbrush cup. When he was using only one color but thinning it directly in the cup he did not overtly do any stirring. Is there a method he is using that is just so casual that I am not seeing it or is it not necessary when just using one color with thinner?

    There's a subtle mixing method you can do where you cover the tip of the airbrush with your finger, so rather than the air exiting the tip of the airbrush, it bubbles back up through the paint cup and mixes the contents.   

    You see him use this method in the chapter "Painting the Prosthetics" at 7 min 15 seconds.
