Has to be laid down evenly. Read the tech info about the spray pattern/overlap and stick to it! Keep the gun evenly spaced and moving along at a steady pace. There's no "hit that spot again" touch-ups with pearls.

The number of coats will alter the final outcome - so do all the pieces in order and move through them the same number of times. The test sprays should be done to determine how many coats you like, so try a few and label them to make sure you know which you like and how to replicate it.
