OK - this video is from an auto body guy, but it's applicable for us.
I have never in my life shot a finish that had so many runs as this poor body panel has.
But this guy has a clever trick in his back pocket that might work sometime if one of our members needs to fix someone else's very poor spraying.....
I'm not saying it's genius - but it's a pretty sharp idea.
We could use something like watered down plaster of paris... you get the gist.
Watch and comment, guys!

Very cool. Definitely applicable to guys shooting plastic finishes as well as true lacquer. I was taught to use a brand new razor blade and various abrasive medias, and I was always scared to death I would ruin a finish. Wasn't such a problem on solid colors, but a sunburst or stained finish - yeah. This trick gives a finish guy a fudge factor or some wiggle room.
