So, to mention more. The last mix I made, which consisted of 5 oz of water, I noticed that even with the gun at 50% open there was still unwanted bigger drops. Mind you, it was better then the 6 oz of water at 50% open. The 5 oz water at 50% open gave a better, more duster like pattern, then the 6 oz at 50% open. The jump from 5 oz to 6 oz made things worse in having more bigger drops. I'm guessing that the mix, with only the initial 4 oz water, will probably spray at the needed duster but still only with the gun dial only at 50% open. As you mentioned, I want to have the gun dial at least 70% open. So, what I'm going to do, is try the mix out with only 3 oz of water then i'll try 4 oz, with the red dye in it, and see how much water it will take to give me the best duster. I want to have the gun at least 70% but would prefer 80% open. Heck, since i'm using the Graco 3900 spraystation which, has more air flow then the 2900, I may end up finding out that 2 oz of water,
, is all that it will take instead of the initial 4 oz...
Second, I'll have to use the Martha Stewart polish silver for the next batch and I notice that the consistency of the Martha Stewart, Polish Silver, is thinner then the Liquitex silver. Up to this point I've been using the Liquitex .Does the thinner MS silver mean I need to add more silver to the batch or keep it the same?? How will the thinner MS silver effect how the gun sprays??
I'm glad you guys switched to the MS polished silver. It's cheaper then the Liquitex silver and you get more of it as well. It's also far easier to find a Home Depot then a Micheals. Thanks guys for making the change.
