How cold is it where you’re spraying? Even in a spray can, if the lacquer is cold it will not flow out the way it should. If I’m spraying when it’s cold, I try to fool my finish and project to think that it’s actually warm. I will keep both the spray lacquer and my project in the house for at least 24 hours so it’s all equal to room temp. and then just before I spray the finish, I will take it to the shop, turn off the heat out there, make sure I have good ventilation and spray.

Works pretty good for small projects, but not so well it you’re building a big piece of furniture.
