Depends on the type of spray system you have. Anyway, the owner's manual will tell you what paint types you can spray, what nozzle tips to use, how much pressure and reduction is required for each type of coating, etc..

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

I have used a low pressure spray gun with my air compressor, it's an internal mix type so you can adjust the spray pattern and pressure. It will spray anything from flat primer to high gloss enamels. They run anywhere from $20-$50 US.
An HVLP type would work as well. These are used a lot for automotive painting so it should lay even lacquer on pretty smooth. Be sure you do it in a dust free enclosed environment, and wear a mask
