Gimme a chance.Maybe he's adding fancy graphics though, I'm eagerly awaiting the results.
Start spraying before item as well, keep gun right angle to job bit like weldingKeep moving and run off the end before you let go of the trigger. Several light coats is your best bet. Watch some videos and then experiment with your larger tips 1.7 and 2.0 and your air pressure but don't go too high.
I’ve got a 3hp comp with 50l tank.If it's with you as here, perfect conditions.
Viscosity and nozzle size will be trial and error.
Got loads of thinners ? And a suitable compressor ?
Don't forget to clean, blow out and dismantle the spray gun as you're waiting for each coat to dry.
That’s come out goodView attachment 301252
I did these with a little gravity fed LVLP gun from Machine mart using Dulux quick drying acrylic, I am sure the gun has a 1.8mm tip and that the paint was straight from can but I did put it through a filter before it went in the pot. The aluminium table and chairs were sprayed with hamerite special surface primer from the same gun, I don't remember diluting either paint I suspect it was around 30 to 40 psi but again can't remember as it was a few months ago.
Sorry for the poor photo but that was the most shade I could find in the garden this afternoon.
Thank you, they were my Dad's and had been hand painted a few times when I got them, I used the jet washer to strip off all the old paint prior to priming. Some parts of the table could have done with a bit thicker coating but overall I am very pleased with how they have come out .That’s come out good
tell me more about the filters, what do I need to get?

Paint filters look like coffee filters but with a fine plastic mesh, loads of them on ebay, as an example 100 x paint strainer they are cheep so don't keep re using them as water based paints will dissolve the paper. You can get stands that hold the filters above the paint pot, I just put the filter in the top of the pot.
Mine is a similar looking gun but LVLP so both low volume and low pressure giving almost no overspray mist, it came from Machine Mart as an emergency purchase on a Saturday morning. Having just looked they don't seem to do it any more.The spray gun has arrived, not quite the mini spray gun I was expecting, good ole eBay !
This is it

will that mini regulatior be ok to control pressure at the gun?
if so, my plan is to fit hoses and connectors either end so I can use it for another spray gun
I’ve got another regulator with water trap etc. Bought it a few months ago.I've been using cheap spray guns for thick industrial paint for a while now, as well as a nice(er) gun for bodywork and proper nice finish coats.
I have pretty much the same HVLP gun, the nozzle was tightly stuck on but managed to butcher it off with molegrips. The air regulator screw internally is a bit dicky, but not unusable.
I bought it for steelwork, and ran around 20 litres through it so far. I put the biggest nozzle in, thin the paint a bit, and as long as it flows through the gun, it sprays most thick paints are self levelling, so even if it goes on in large droplets, it works fine. Speed is my only problem, thick paint and gravity feed do not work well together.
Thinner paints will spray easily though, and you'll love it compared to hand painting.
I'd sack off the little regulator, you'd do a lot better with a seperate filterset to help trap some moisture, and put it at the compressor end of the hose.
The other really handy thing is a swivel joint, lets you get down low and tight to things.
I've finally bought an airless paint setup so looking forward to trying that out some time.
It’s the 672 071 touch up spray gun, now a discontinued productParm - can you tell me what make/model the spraygun you posted a picture of is ( the silver one with paint container under the gun, looks like RS 672***)? Thanks.
Google spraying farrow and ball paint there are quite a few videos on the topic.
