I am redoing my cabinets. My primer and first coat of paint went on flawlessly - a beautiful finish. I have done all the prep properly, like sanding between coats, but for some reason I keep getting air bubbles that are leaving craters when it dries.

I am using Benjamin Moore Advanced with a Graco 360.

Any advice to fix this issue is greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like offgassing. Did you wait a sufficient amount of time between coats for your climate?

  • Yes,I waited 6 days to do the second coat.

  • If you are using spray paint, keep the coating thin and without overlapping. Wait for it thoroughly dries, then add the next thin coat in the orthogonal direction to the first.
