What could cause this? There was no thinner added. I went to spray my car with Testors White Lightning and it seemed to bubble up then when I went over it again it just ran like water. I put it on thin coats, and the weather is colder and low humidity so i know that did not have effect. Thanks in advance for the input

Too cold and so was the paint.....warm it up, (can hot) in running water, shake very well, pull back a bit and put on MIST coats.....realllllly thin, if its cold testors paints shoot thick and heavy....where I come from cold is 60 degrees! :blink: ;) I decant most testors paints as they are a bear to get on in thin coats....love the paint.:D ..the nozzles suck :lol: Now the metalizers don't give me problems.....go figure!

I usually prime it before I shoot it, unless i'm not doing any body work.
