Ohh my God, this thread is back.
Glad to hear you had some success painting. The more you paint the more natural everything becomes. You still have a lot to battle painting at home (dust, bugs, moisture in air lines, overspray and lighting, legality ect) and no matter how long you have been painting you will still mess up once in a great while, but when you know you have done all the work, and the prep usually is a lot of work, you have the pride to say I did it. Unfortunately paint isn't cheap. Omni is ppg's budget line, not dupont. Not a big deal though. Did you use the ppg? Wonder if nightrain ever did try painting.
