Diluting acetone in no different than diluting another solvent e.g. absolute
ethanol.   I generally measure the water into a graduated cylinder, then add
the solvent.  So if you want 50% acetone, measure out 50 ml distilled water,
then add acetone to the 100 ml mark on a 100 ml capacity graduated cylinder.
I don't know of any reason why you could not do a different percentage of
acetone, whether higher or lower either.
