Yup newbie to spraying too. The very first thing I realized is I wasn’t thinning the paint enough. I was using the HF HVLP gun w/ oil based paint and it already looked thin enough, but it wasn’t.

In one of his finishing videos Charles Neil showed a very simple formula for determining viscosity: if the paint comes through the strainer about as fast as a medium pour rate, its thin enough. Very subjective but worked for me!
