Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Well, could be. You did not specify what type of paint you are spraying onto what type of material....
Are you filtering your paint? do you have an air line evaporator? The secret to drying compressed air is to COOL it first, often with long air lines (or refrigeration unit), then the vapor separator. If the air is still hot, vapor will not be separated.
and by textured, do you mean raised bumps or valleys?

Most times when the paint looks "textured", this usually has the appearance of an orange peel. This is caused by the paint being too thick, not enough air pressure at the gun, and or spraying the paint too slow or too close.

In this article you will learn the best way to spray paint anything from wood frames auto parts.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions things you'll need:
Start by removing the part that needs to be painted. (You can also tape around it, but be careful about overs pray)
Sand the part with the 300 grit sand paper until the surface is a little rough. This is necessary for the primer to bond with the surface. After sanding wipe down the part with micro fiber cloth.
Lightly spray the part with primer. A few light coats are better than one heavy coat. Make sure to allow proper drying time between coats.
After a few light coats of primer have been applied, wetsand with the 800 grit sandpaper. After wet sanding, wipe again with micro fiber cloth.
Now it is time to apply the color. When spraying the spray paint make sure to use smooth even passes across what is being painted. Do not start painting on top of the part because the paint will be heavier in that area. When painting you want to press and release the button to the side of the product being painted. Again a few light coats are better than one heavy one and make sure to allow proper drying time between coats.
After you are satisfied with the color, wetsand with 800 grit sandpaper and then wipe with micro fiber cloth.
Now it is time for the clear coat. Spray the clear coat the same way as the spray paint. Only one or two light coats are needed. Allow the clear coat plenty of time to dry as this is the layer that you will see most. You don't want any fingerprints on your final surface!
After the clear coat has had more than enough time to dry, You now want to wetsand with the 800 grit, then the 1000 grit, then 1200, then 1500, and finally the 2000 grit sandpaper. This should remove any heavier spots in the clear coat and will polish your painted product up very nicely.
Next you need to remove the scratches left by the 2000 grit. For this you will need to buff the surface with rubbing compound.
Now you need to buff the surface with a medium cut polish to give the surface a nice glassy look.
Whether it be exterior or interior parts that have been painted, I always add a couple coats of wax to the surface. This acts as a protectant to the clearcoat and gives it a nice smooth feel and also helps repel dirt.

SPRAY CLEAR GLITTER ON DRY WALLS -- Go to your local craft store and pick up a couple cans of spray glitter. You want a clear base so you can keep your current wall color. Look for a spray that says something like clear glitter finish or clear glitter sealer. Then just spray your walls with the clear glitter spray.
PAINT YOUR WALLS WITH GLITTER SPRAY PAINT -- If you want to change the color of your walls you can spray paint them with colored glitter spray paint so you get the painting and glitter done in one easy step. However, spray paint can be expensive and you may find it is difficult to get a nice even coat of paint. So this method would be good for a small room or an accent wall.
PAINT YOUR WALLS THEN ADD GLITTER -- This is the cheapest way to get the glittery look you want. Buy your wall paint in the color of your choice. Then buy tubes of glitter in the craft section. As you paint your walls, do one small section at a time. Then pour out a bit of glitter on a paper plate and gently blow on the glitter so it blows onto the freshly painted wall. The glitter will stick to the wet paint. Then move on to the next section and do the same thing! If you are applying two coats of paint to your walls add the glitter to the second coat.
