im not sure if it would help with latex paint, but something i do when shooting auto paint thats metallic:
after i get the coat on, i go back and do a mist/dust/fog/ drop coat.costly mistake learning that- i did an 87 blazer in its original brown metallic( not the factory name there. it had a wicked copper/bronze flake that just blasted awesomeness when sun hit it. sprayed the blazer in my booth.very well lit booth,too looked great! then pulled it into the sun- major tiger stripes.) basically wait til the paint flashes, the turn the air pressure up a bit,hold my gun about 2 feet from the panel and shoot the paint in semi fast strokes. ive done it for single stage metallics( and base/clear) and it gets everything even.

im sure someone else with more experience with latex can offer advise.
