spraying general finishes milk paint and it says it can be sprayed out of the can. One of their vids on youtube sugested a 2.0 tip. I have an apollo 4 stage 1025 and used a 2.0 tip and b cap.

Problem is I’m getting splatter on my test spray and to get that to stop I have to open the flow pretty wide.

should that be cut with watter or maybe a diff tip. (i’m using the atomizer gun)

It lays down a nice layer but wasting a huge amount of pait to get it down good.

I reduce GF milk paint 10% to spray out of my pneumatic HVLP.
I spray a gallon or more per month and this reduction seems to be the sweet spot for me.

Have your say...
