While the new paint is still wet I take a Q-tip swab with some rubbing alcohol and carefully clean off any bleed through. I have gotten a lot of complements on my current project using these techniques.

    I found that having the viscosity of the paint correct is one of the keys to getting the paint to lay down to avoid orange peel.
    Another is having the light just right so that you can watch the paint flow while you are spraying.

    I also noticed that if there is just a touch of orange peel when you are done spraying it will have a tendency to smooth out as it dries.

    I whole heartily agree with what Rick said.
    One other trick that has saved me more than once is have masking tape handy in the paint booth. If you get a run fold a piece in a circle with the sticky side out. Gently lay it on the run and then remove it. The tape will absorb the excess pint.
    DO NOT do anything else. Leave it alone. 9 times out of 10 the paint will flow out and the next day you won’t see I.
