What spraying equipment did you use? I want to use flo-coat as I've purchased the correct Avon colour; couldn't find it in 2 pack.

Tim,

I,ve never sprayed "flowcoat" Have only ever brushed it on where the finish wasn't too important.

Styrene is what I used to thin it with, up to 10%. In the end the finish wasn't too bad.

It did indeed Predictably with a roller there was a slight orange feel effort, but it looks most respectable.

No. Probably to people's dismay I put a splash of acetone in which seemed to work well.
