basic techniques for spraying candy? help needed

Ive typed 'candy' into the search engine above and read the 8 pages on candy posts but i cant find an answer to a basic question i have. When spraying candy i understand that the whole length of the car needs spraying in one motion and not one panel at a time but once the sides have been sprayed how do i spray the front and rear bumper without leaving much more candy on the four corners of the car? surely the build up at these edges will be easy to spot in the sun?? the only thing i can think of to not get this is to go the whole way around the car in one motion, doing both sides and front and back in one go but surely this cant be the only way

Once you get to shooting paint you will see where the laps are and how to lay your paint down to get it even..Practice with your primer and base to see this so when you get to the candy you are a bit more confident..

Just a matter of practicing laying it down even..Some days it is just a matter of gathering oneself up and going for it..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
