A lady at our church asked me to paint four shutters for her.  Mush to my dismay, the paint she gave me was water based latex.  I recently read a finishing article that said to thin latex with windshield washer fluid.  I cut the latex at 10% and sprayed it with a drop feed sprayer at about 45 PSI.  It worked but better than I could imagine.   The alcohol in the washer fluid sped the drying process and the finish was quite smooth.  Who'd a thunk it?

I just thin it with water to 60 seconds thru a viscosity cup. And then spray it using my $14 Harbor Freight purple spray gun. Air pressure is about 45 psi. Just sprayed the house shutter to match the new spouting. We used to have vinyl spoutings and I sprayed sprayed them and the shutters the same color.
