there are one of two problems here that are possabilities
1) you need to turn down your outlet volume on your machine
2) look at your technique ...the optimum amount of solution should be in the order of 25/30ml ...200 is far to much and could cause running as well as considerable revenue loss

Turn the gun output down and get closer in to the working area therefore reducing the amount of solution being applied to the skin as well as overspray

HTH and good luck

25ml per client?! I wish I could cover my clients with 25ml! 40-50ml is about average for mine, and I thought across the board?

That is SO much!! You need to take a look at your machine outputs and try not to get trigger happy. Also check that while cleaning you haven’t forgotten to put the needle back in the gun that controls the trigger flow. Giving it a clean anyway and taking the needle out and resetting it might help, it could have gotten stuck from build up and then dislodged to let out too much product.

If absolutely loads is coming out of the gun, move much faster til you figure out the problem. If you are going slow they will end up sipping wet. If you see drips running down their legs you are too close and using too much. Think mist from afar haha.

Try placing a long piece of couch roll on the floor, then do as donnamich suggests, turn your dial so nothing comes out, then gradually turn it and spray onto the couch roll. You should get a gradual increase in spray coverage, so see if that works. If it does, put a mark on the dial so you know where it should always be. If it doesn't make any difference I would contact LA Tan as they are pretty good at sorting problems out.

Also don't spray anyone twice in one session! It does NOT make them darker with two spray, this is also a waste of tan ✌
