This weekend I sprayed my second project with a tinted coat. My girlfiend wanted to redo a maple dress we had with a dark finish so I got some Dark Walnut Trans Tint and started to experiement with the color. After I figured out the color I wanted I mixed up 12 oz. of finish with 75 drops of trans tint. I filterd the finish before mixing in the color. Then sprayed it. I keep getting specs of dark finish. It looked like the dye was clumping up or the finish was drying up in clumps before coming out the gun. I cleand the gun and tried again and got the same problem.
After that I decided to filter the finish again with the dye in it. There were a bunch of the clumps that I had on the finish in the filter! After filtering the finish it sprayed fine. The second time I had to mix more of the finish I added the dye then filtered and got the same thing.
Just wondering if any one has had this expirence before when using trans-tint mixed into a finish?
I wish I took some pictures of what I screened out. I was just trying to get the dresser sprayed and I was really tired of a full day of stripping the old paint off the dress so I didnt even think of taking a picture of it!
