Keep an even distance and spray left to right or vice versa

when you paint with a gun, you give few light coats then i heavy coat on the top, and just take ya time as well, dont rush it or it will knack up big time
If you can master a spray can, then a gun will be no trouble. I got myself a training DVD before I started using a compressor and gun.
Just make sure you set the pressure about right, also the spray pattern should look like an oval shape, otherwise it will make your life harder and you could end up with runs like I did once. LOL

Start and finish off the piece, as this avoids excess spots of paint (go for spray cans too.

do not criss cross ur spray pattern,just use nice and steady cross strokes.
obviously test ur sprayin pattern on something before hand to work out how to do it.
i always test on my garage door and get the settings on the gun right

Also, use tack rags to remove any unwanted dust or bacteria, you can buy them from any hardware store and wipe over the area your spraying, just try to keep an even distance and a steady pace and flick the wrist at the end of each stroke to prevent spraying in one spot for too long which would result in an uneven coat. is it a gravity fed gun or the other one!! gravity fed is easier to learn with. good luck
