I think I have dry spray.

I think I have dry spray.

Im spraying 2K au ss, so far Ive only painted the jambs etc.
The paint was applied about a week ago over a few days.
Some of the finishes are smooth as glass others painted on different days feel sandy like 2000 grit paper but still looks glossy, all surfaces were prepared the same only differences were they were sprayed on different days and the gun was set each time, the weather hardener and reducer was the same.
All had mist coat plus two full coats. Almost no orange peel.
Does this read like to drier spray?
Can I fix the stuff already applied by buffing?
If I repaint do I need the sand?

Could it be overspray that settled back on the finish
that was sprayed earlier?
Either way, you should be able to buff it out.
Give it a try and see, you may not even need to sand it first
if it's just a mist that dried on top of good paint.
And sometimes a clay bar will work good for just a
light mist
