I used HVLP. Why? Because of all the angles & curves in my handy-work. By doing this I can control the paint flow better & get into all those hard to get at areas, with a better, more even coverage.
Airless-Guns are great on walls with no features, but in my case, HVLP was the much-preferred option......especially knowing my experience with them in my earlier years in the automotive industry.
Yes it took slightly longer & I had to fill up the pot probably a dozen times, but you still have to wait "In-between-coats" for them to "Flash-Off (dry), so there's not much difference......& the end results speak for themselves.
What you do to get a great finish WITHOUT-PAINT-RUNS is go around all the hard to get at areas first. In other words, leave all the easy bits to last because the're the surfaces you'll see all the time.
So put ONE, I stress ONE coat of paint on all those angled, framed areas. Go right around the room and by the time you come back to the start, the paint would have "Flashed-Off"....making it ready to paint the whole walls. Follow your "Wet-Edge"....DON"T double-up & everything will be SWEET.
For best results use a "TACK-RAG". A Tack-Rag is a sticky-cloth that you wipe down on all the walls, JUST before your ready to paint. Doing this procedure will eliminate all dust particles that you can't see but notice later STANDING-UP in finished paint jobs.
