Weighing tube paint?

Hi all,

I know there are several ways of figuring out how much tube watercolour paint to use in order to print gum; by eye, worm size, luck, practice etc. I came across a weight scale of 0.001g to 50g in the papers, I was just wondering if that would work in order to weight a small worm size? Or would I need something with alot more Zero's at the end! :) Just want to be precise in my methods...
