DuPont Clear

Hi all,

I am painting a fiberglass piece, but have run in to a problem.

I am new to the whole spray gun thing, but not to airbrushing, rattle canning etc. I am using DuPont Nason acrylic clear in an aerosol can as the top coat for Chroma Base. Now my problem is this. When I spray the clear it doesn't look right. It is drying to a slightly rough, orange peel surface for some reason. I have allowed the bc to dry for a few hours and then sprayed the clear. This is not my first time applying a rattle can finish, with that said I know I am applying it right. E.G. - spraying 8 to 10 inches from the surface in a sweeping motion and applying several light coats. I am contemplating on buying a quart of clear and using my badger spray gun to apply it but am worried that it wont come out right. Seeing how my luck is showing just by using the nason aerosol clear.

If anyone can provide any insight on what the problem might be or how to correct it I would appreciate it very much. Also, if someone can recommend a good, easy to use dupont clear that works well with Chroma Base that would also be a real help.

Thanks everyone!

Isn't it recommended that a couple of medium wet coats be applied? It sounds like it is going on too dry.
I have used the Nason clear in spray cans before for small repairs and have had really good results.
