reduced base?

#1
Sprayed a bumper cover today with some Nason base. I was thinking that I had already reduced it but now I'm second guessing myself. Everything seems fine but should I be worried. What would happen if the base wasn't reduced?

If it wasn't reduced, you would know it immediately. If it came out reasonably smooth, it was reduced. The only reason for reducer is ease of spraying.

That's what I was thinking but me being new to all this I'm still learning. Mostly from my mistakes lol. It went on really smooth so I must have reduced it at some point.
Thanks texasking!

If you are going to store reduced base write it on the can lid with a sharpie marker, "Reduced 1:1, Med" (or slow or whatever ratio, etc.). And don't add any hardener , if desired, until you are ready to use it.
