Topic tags/keywords: question finishing

Okay I sprayed today agaisnt my better judgement and even though I added retarder to the laquer It still flashed over way to quick and I have a pretty bad case of orange peel on my new book case. Normaly I would just scuff it and respray but its to severe for that to fix it. And the problems is some spots ( left side and back) came out fine with an even texture. So do I sand it all back down and redoing all or just the bad spots and should I let it cure a couple days or does that matter. Another issue is the finish is black paint glazed with brown stain and then gemini laquer for a top coat I sprayed two coats on everything and I’m worrid about sanding to much and screwing my glaze up which came out really good. So any advice is welcome

There is couple of ways that can happen.

1) Your gun is not close enough to the surface your spraying 2)Not enough air pressure 3) The gun adjustment is not adjusted properly 4) You did not thin it enough

I think Its just I didnt thin it enough I did add retarder to combat the moisture in the air but the cold had a greater effect on the finish than I though it would

Sounds like you didn’t thin it enough and gun is not adjusted properly.

Cold weather has nothing to do with it
