Handling different kinds of bubbles
Impatiently painting a surface can lead to small bubbles.It happens to every homeowner: that fresh coat of paint looks like the dimpled skin. Shaking a can introduces excess air. Also, rolling too energetically can whip bubbles into the paint. High-gloss paints are particularly sensitive.
Another problem is a porous surface like plywood or brick. A primer should help.
Blisters are often seen on latex and acrylic interior and exterior finishes. They introduce themselves when the paint separates from its base, a consequence of when the application temperature was too cold (below 50 degrees, to 35 degrees) or too hot (above 90 degrees), or the base was damp.
Painting during a extreme weather often results in bulging blisters, shouts of frustration and various unprintable phrases. Painting during hot, sunny afternoons may result in the upper stratum of the coat drying too quickly, making the solvents vaporize and expand into unsightly boils.
