Hi everyone. 
Could anyone  tell me why my primer is building  up on  the horns of my air cap on the spray gun.   Its a devilbiss slg gun 620. With a 1.8 tip. 
Its spraying nice  just getting  buildup of paint. 

Its a new gun  .and i normally use cans so just getting used to it .

    You are probably not atomizing correctly, or you are holding the gun too close to the part.

    If you format the name like this @magic it alerts the person that you are talking to them.

    Distance should be 12 to 16 inches away

    @WileECoyote  im definitely  way to  close  6 to 7 inches im spraying  at. My settings  must be way off. Thank you for the  help.   I can get near perfect  results with cans as i warm them in  hot water and had loads of practice .
    Here is what i spayed so far
    So big learning  curve ahead cheers dude.
