I think he's spraying, aye. But the nominal thickness of the Rusto / Dulux etc. coats is greater than 2k etc. Atomising it through a sprayer would (in my head) make the applied coat thinner still.

 

Spraying should mean the coat dries faster, enamel paints are pretty inert unless you pour 2k / celly thinners on them or something.

You are using mineral thinners / white spirit aren't you?

Good luck dude!

 

Extra meticulous this time round that it's all dry and clean I guess. Hopefully for the last time ;-)

Didn't just land and die, no it had to try crawl about :)

I had the same problem with moths, seemed to take great delight in skimming across the surface leaving little dust marks like some kind of insectoid bouncing bomb.
