Default Spraying Plasti-Dip (Yes I know there is a Plasti-Dip Thread)

I know there is a plasic-dip thread already but it is not providing the info I am looking for. I want to know how people are spraying the product on dash pieces to get the textured, non-gloss look.
How are you doing it? Is it 2 heavy coats, let that tack up, then one very very light coat to get a pebble effect?
Please, to all who have used plasti-dip, provide me with some spraying info. Thanks.

I did about 4 coats. FYI don't go over it with a California duster. I've had mine done for a couple weeks and was dusting my car and got the threads stuck all over my guage pod.

When spraying Plasti Dip on :
4 or 5 light coats, wait 10min or so between each coat (depending on the weather)

When cleaning plasti dipped panels:
I use a tack cloth to wipe it off when I clean the interior. Roll it up like a cylinder and roll or blot it down the face of the surface rather than wiping.

I'll say the exact same thing I said in the other thread (AKA SEARCH NOOB)
The distance from the nozzle to the work controls the texture. Closer is glossier, farther away is grainier.
