Flattening cellulose top coat

Recommended Posts

I posted a question last year about spraying panels using cellulose paint and got some really good advice - thanks!

 

I'm hoping to spray a door panel once the warmer weather arrives but one question I have is about flattening the top coat. Why do you need to do this and what happens if you just leave the final coat un-flattened? I'm sure there's a good reason so it would be really helpful to know.

 

Thanks again

Getting it perfect out of the gun is very tricky, flatting and polishing will remove orange peel and any dirt that's landed in the paint, it makes for a better end result.

Thanks Darren

 

So I flatten back with a fine grit paper and then polish?
