I have applied my first ever coat of spray finish via the Earlux 5500 to a 6'x3' table top. Enduro Var gloss. I now have orange peel after a complete dry.

I have sanded this orange peel down a bit with 320 paper and wonder how far to go? In some spots, it seems i have gotten it completely smooth, but in most of the table, i have just sanded off the tops of the peel - i can see shinny low spots between each peak which didn't get the sand paper.

I know Enduro Var is very good at self leveling, but before I try a 2nd coat, should I sand it all the way smooth or will it just fill in the low spots itself? I have dye stain under the coat, so very hesitant to go too far.

Could use advice on the peel of course as well. I think that i was holding it 8-10" from the table top. i have a 1.5mm nozzle and the screw opened 2 full turns. I know that i should hold it slightly lower, but Do i need more liquid coming out the gun?
Thanks in advance.

Is the peeling due to your technique or are there surface contaminents impeding the proper bonding of your finish to the surface?
