how to remove bubbles from paint

You gotta help us here, Velma. What size are the bubbles? What kind of prep did you do to the walls before painting? Did you clean all the dust off the walls before painting? Is it drywall or plaster? Did you use latex or oil based paint? What brand of paint was used? If they are small bubbles, that is not uncommon and many times they disappear as the paint dries and cures. If they are big, moisture filled bubbles you may have a bigger problem to deal with. Post a pic, that would help us help you. Wait a day or two to see what happens to the bubbles, then reply back to let us know what's going on.

If the bubbles are in the can (from recent shaking to mix to a color), use a stir stick and slowly mix the solution to incorporate the product. This should also eliminate bubbles, which were caused by the agitation.
