That sounds like what maybe I’m experiencing. This is my first time spraying and I got a false sense of security with the primer because it was so nice.

So, I’ll now admit this as everyone can laugh at me, but would this “dry spray” be accelerated if I told you I spraying outsides, about 75-80 deg, in the sun…? (central WI)

Since I have no experience at all with spraying, I’m not sure if its drying TOO fast… For example, I have 5 standard kitchen cabinet doors on a table. I spray them all, and by the time I get done with the last one, the first one is nearly dry – I wouldn’t touch it, but I likely could. There might be a spot or two that still have the wet “sheen” look, but mostly dry – that too fast? (My estimate is 5 min or so).

I can for sure thin more and cut back on pressure – I jacked the pressure up because it “felt” like it was working better, plus I was having paint flow issues, which I resolved (glob of dried paint stuck in strainer) – I now use the paper screen funnels when pouring my paint in – there must have been a dried blob in the can that make its way to my cup.

Also, I have 1.5HP 35 gal air compressor that obviously runs enough during my 1.5-2 hr spray campaign – I’m sure that air is getting warmer and warmer over time and likely makes this issue worse?
