Tiny bubbles in Monarch High Gloss Alkyd Enamel


A couple of cupboard doors in my kitchen were looking shabby with lots of paint chips, so I tried to refinish them with the same Monarch Enamel paint that the builder used. The paint is about one year old stored indoor.

After stirring it with a paint stick, I notice that there was a bunch of tiny bubbles on the stick. So I test painted on the back side of the door. Sure enough, the paint dried with bubbles in it.

My question is how do I get rid of bubbles in the paint?

How thick is it? Sounds like it may need thinned down some. Use a china bristle brush? Rollers and foam brushes tend to entrap bubbles during application.

The paint didn't look very thick but I am just a novice. I will try adding a little mineral spirit today and see if it helps.

Might have some particulates not easily visible. Passing it through cheesecloth or other filter might be a good idea.

Did you shake or stir it?
