Unless you missed each Row completely, your OK. Just be certain the next coat overlaps a full 60%. If you notice it beforehand really bad, Dusting across the weakest areas alone can even it out somewhat, however a Duster will often look pretty bad as it's only a "Tack assisting" coat anyway.
Also turned fan towards too tacky of a coat and got 3 of my lab's hairs in it! take them out before next duster (they're laying flat)?
don't make that mistake again. As the paint goes on thicker, trying to pick out a hair becomes major surgery and could result in serious complications, especially if attempted while the coat is still wet. ONLY
if there is a goodly loop of the hair sticking above the surface of the paint...something you can "tweeze" off...should you try to remove it before the screen is dry. As the paint starts being applied more heavily, the bigger the hair, the more you should wait until the area is dry to pull it off. But if that hair lays within the overlap of another row to come, and you think you can stop briefly to snatch it off, then you should not coat over it again lest it become embedded and a permanent fixture.[/quote]
Also paint seems a little thick (I'm using 17 oz. total) Anybody out there care to "chime in"?
Not "chiming", I ringing the "School Bell" ! If the paint is not flowing smoothly out of the Wagner, and producing a full 10" tall pattern from 12'-14"s away, then it's too thick. Add another 2 oz water to your "Full" (17 oz.) mix and EXPERIMENT with that on something BEFORE you do any coating that is any heavier than a Duster. Doing it before your next Duster would be even better.
Thanks in advance, Steve
At least the color of the mix looks right on! Guess ALL is not wrong in the world
Perhaps not, but you can start a Chain Reaction of events that can lead to the destruction of all life as you know it.
