Quote: how many coats are on that piece? Are you using many light coats, or few heavier coats?
Not sure how many coats I used. I did it in 3 spraying sessions. I'm using a high build lacquer, which puts a lot of solids on the piece compared to the standard stuff. I don't really worry too much about a nice surface. Like I said in the previous post, since I'm wet sanding it really doesn't matter that much how smooth the surface is right off the sprayer. May not be the ideal way to do it, but it works for me. I've thought about trying the normal build next can I buy. It should take more coats to get the build I need, but result in a smoother surface that should require a little less wet sanding.
I started out using rattle can lacquer with this technique. It works, but I much prefer lacquer from the can using a gun. I've used Deft, Watco and Rustoleum brand rattle can lacquer. I wouldn't recommend the Rustoleum. It's remains very soft even after long cure times.
I find that I can get really nice flow and surface on a flat piece of wood. The round stuff is a lot tougher to get nice flow over the entire piece. Especially if I have something like a lip around the opening.
