Your varnish isn't thin
Posted by Charlie Jones on Sep 15, 2005
enough for the tip on your gun. I shoot 1015 and 2015 both, although I use siphon guns. I do almost all of my varnish work on the boats I build using a spray gun. I thin both 1015 and 2015 with 100% mineral spirits. Be careful- it takes much less than you think.
Don't let anyone kid you that spraying is less desirable than brushing. You can get nice thin coats, much easier using spray equipment than any brushing, plus it's SO much quicker you'll get a smoother lay down once you get the proper consistency.
