Damm. Nothing is working. Can't get a good finish.
I would use other words to describe how I feel, but I think I would be kicked off the FOG.

 I feel your pain.  It's frustrating just following along.

What is the current setup that seems worse than all the others ?  Is the same issue happening or is it a different dried finish this go ?

I think you're at:
10% water
1.8mm tip

-Have you take a viscosity reading of both colors ?
-Have you tried thinning the paint more ? maybe 15% ?
-Have you acquired a 2mm tip ? Or even a larger one!

I'd try thinning a bit more with the same 1.8mm tip ?
