Toothier the better or some paint has trouble with coverage. I usually spray matt black on (depending on manufacturer that can range from a nice grainy finish to a horrible slick surface) then I mist it with white from two feet away. The light white spray gives all the tooth I need ever time, and also does high and low lights over the black. Thank you Dr Faustus painting clinic for that.

If I want a smooth surface , just paint some more base coat on by hand.
