Any wisdom on settings for both air and material flow through an HVLP
sprayer that work best for spraying shellac?
Sprayed my first shellac on a project over the last two weekends with an el
cheapo HVLP turbine sprayer (CH) I purchased for starters.
RH was in the 90% range and I had no problems with blushing ... which I may
be wrongly attributing to using 99% isopropyl for the 1# cut I mixed from a
3# cut can of amber Bullseye.
At the outset, I had very slight orange peel on a couple of upper edges of
my test piece, which I attribute mostly to technique. This disappeared once
I kept the nozzle parallel to the piece and both stopped and started past
The results on the actual work was more than satisfactory, and I like the
results so much that I may upgrade to more adjustable apparatus.
