actually it is science, and the list would be very very long. more like a book lol
some tips i can give you,
always keep your paint at 70 plus degrees, if its any colder than that do not spray it.
most tech sheets are made around 70 degrees so following the tech sheet will work best if everything is at that temp.
for a beginner stay away from high solids clears IMO, use a med solids, they are more user friendly. giving advice is tough on a forum due to peoples budget and spray area. i can make paint perform very well in most situations but without being there it gets tough.
things that make paint look like crap are,
over reduced because youre trying to make thick cold paint thin,
the three above are pretty important. you could have the best gun in the world (SATA)
and paint look like crap still.
base and clear 1.3 1.4 is the tips you want. full trigger pull for a panel or larger,
warm environment, not warm to you but actual warm temp, your body heat rises when working and it will feel warmer than it is.
take your time, if a tech sheet says two coats that does not mean you have to do it in two coats, youre more than welcome to do it in 4 lighter coats, so again take your time be patient and be ready to foul up and learn to fix it.
