Making spray gel

So, I'd like to try a spray gel...I think I may get better coverage and it might give me hold that I need, but not be too heavy either. I have a tube of HEBE that I could use to try to make my own to test out. Can someone give me some ratios (or some general directions) to make it with? I don't want to make too much and have it go bad, and I don't mind making small batches, but it would be a better use of what I have rather than spending money that I should be saving for my trip to Nashville in a month. TIA!

I find getting a small spray bottle & mixing them is better than what I did, so you don't have to commit to the whole mixture & you can mess around with it a bit. I'm actually thinking of adding some CCCC lite to my bottle...just for a little conditioning, but not sure how this would work out...
