Will air pressure, pattern or paint “cocktail” affect this?

along with a few other things, tip size on gun being one. if the paint is too thick for the tip being used the paint wont atomize enough- the gun will throw out little spatters/globs of paint- and leave what youre seeing, which is called orange peel.
, PSI at the gun( not sure what gun youre using but 60psi seems awefully high). fluid control, fan pattern all have to be set.
then its up to gun control- distance from surface, speed of movement, and overlap %.

start with the gun- what gun and what tip size?
