You will always get a bit of orange peel, and some colours are worse than others. Try putting on the powder a bit thicker if you can. Unfortunately if you're using a cheapy gun, the power supply will prevent you from building the powder to thick.
You could try "hot coating" !! Pre heat your part to about 220 degrees, then put the powder on then bake as usual. This may allow you to put more poeder on.
