    Just sprayed a couple of speaker cabinets with some Shimmer Pearl sparkles added to clear lacquer. They cabs are enamel paint versions of Surf Green And Daphne Blue. Sprayed no problem out of the gun. Can't wait to see how it turns out tomorrow morning.

    Test worked just fine. I will post some pics of the cab if I can get the " shimmer " to show up in a pic. I will now move on to an actual body.

    I just did this on a cabronita. Word of warning. Spray light. If you get a run it is impossible to get it to level out and blend in. Well maybe not impossible but I failed. LOL. I got it to blend decently but please spray with caution. :)

    I opened up the spray pattern on my gun when I layed on this coat. No problems, just a bit more overspray in the air than normal.
