Bubbles in paint jobs

Published: February 21, 2014
Q: I've read lots of articles on using an airbrush, and have had some good results, but my last few paint jobs have been ruined by little bubbles and spots in the surface. I'm sure they're not specks of dirt, because I'm careful about cleaning the model and my spray booth before starting to paint. They're not "fisheyes," either. Any idea what could be wrong?
