You only have the thin the latex 20 - 30% with water. This is too get
it thin enough to spray. This will not give you fine atomized
particles which seems to be what you're expecting. If you were
spraying lacquer, it would because you'd have the product much
Then you need to add Floetrol which is only added to slow down the
drying time to allow the paint to level.
Try removing the Air Control Valve completely as this does restrict
the air somewhat.
Adjust the spray fan to be a medium size (6 - 8") rather than a large
pattern. This will allow the air to work on a smaller pattern.
Adjust the amount of paint to be less so once again, the air will be
able to atomize it ok.
Don't hold the gun more than 8" away.
Spray a wet coat.
There are better products to spray than Latex House Paint as I'm sure
