- too much water, leading to faster spray rate.
- standing too close
- going too slow.
As for the three reasons, they all are linked.
A very thin paint? Just move faster and from a slighter greater distance.
Standing too close? Hmmmmm.................how about stepping back a little?
Going too slow? Speed up.....OK?
Very thin paint + standing too close+ going to slow = a serous case of SOOL syndrome.
Remember, the best finishes go on as successively applied thin coats.
I'm thinking I will prime 2 more coats, allow that to dry, sand out the ripples, then move to my maxx mudd coats. sound about right?
No,No,No,No,No,No,No,No,............................, sand out the ripples first! You don't want to build up paint over a mistake, or you'll have to sand down to the mistake anyway.
