HVLP. I just got a cheapo touch-up gun from Harbor Freight for $19. It
wasn't advertised as an HVLP, but it operates as low as 10 psi. I had
never used a "real" spray gun so I had to learn the technique as I went.
Coming up with the technique for the speckles was a little more
difficult. I ended up thinning the paint way down, turning the regulator
down to 10 psi, turning the spray gun full blast, and repeatedly hitting
the trigger (like trying to fire a semi-auto really fast). I had to hit
the trigger really hard to make the gun splatter. I ended up with
splatter dots that range from about 0.25mm to 1mm. Looks good.
