I hope I used the right word for the "stuff" that shows up on the walls while rolling. I used Duration matte finish over previously painted walls. During the second coat, "rubbery" material showed up out of the paint tray, onto the roller cover, and then the walls. I pick them off, and re roll. I keep the roller covered when I'm not using it from wall to wall. The paint lid is on the can. The only variable is the tray itself, which is uncovered while I cut in another section. There is no skim in the tray. The SW rep said it might be a "batch" problem. I personally don't like the Duration can. It doesn't seal well. Any help to avoid these artifacts from showing up again? Thanks.

Sounds like it may be coming off the roller, try changing the roller cover.

Keep the pan covered with a damp rag every minute your not rolling. Paint dries quick in the pan. It's just skinning over on you where it's rolled out thin over the pan.

Things are usually a lot simpler than they appear. Covering the tray makes perfect sense. On a side note, the paint poured a little lumpy right from the can. Should have been my first clue. Thanks.

That works, but it causes runs

If you use a roller for any length of time, bits of dried paint tend to collect along the frame itself and can scrape off into the pan or bucket. I try to scrape off that gunk before it gets too dry and thick to fall off on its own.
