Martyjohnson20,

 

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.
