I was wondering, if I wad to combine a 1/4 CTO & a 1/4 CTB gel on a flash, would I end up with a neutral density gel?

My gels have not arrived or I would test it and see.

It would not be neutral, but slightly warm as a quarter of a stop of density is a bit more of orange than of blue. It would be more like a very weak CT straw, but steal a full half stop of light...

So not quite neutral density but close if I get in a pinch and need to tone down the flash further.
