Spraying Motion

To avoid buildup, start spraying off one side of the work piece and don't release the trigger until the spray has passed the other end. If you're painting a wall or other surface with no edge, start moving your arm before pulling the trigger, and release it before you finish the motion. Overlap each pass about an inch to avoid sags or thin spots.
