I would say to turn the pressure right down to as low as you can go - try it on a piece of paper first. Could it be that you were too close and the pressure was blowing the mix along the surface? What finish are you spraying onto?

I either spray mine straight from the bottle or thin with warm water. Never had any problems.

I often spray tamiya smoke which is diluted to a water like consistancy so I can build it up in layers for weathering etc so I doubt it's the dilution, guessing it's the pressure as I use either low pressure or a low flow rate, it might pay to matt the surface first so the paint has a key to stick too (I normally weather after decals have been applied).

Hope this is of some help.

Cheers

Col'
