Fish eyes look somewhat like a bubble , caused by surface contamination . They make an additive called fish eye stopper to prevent it . Another problem is moisture ( high humidity ) coming through your air line causing water bubbles . This is harder to prevent but drain your tank often and install a water trap before your air regulator . I leave my water drain on the compressor tank very slightly open when painting so that condensation seeps out of the tank. I also use a filter at my paint gun to remove contaminates also. Hope this helps a little, Mike

Mist the paint on in very thin layers, allow each to dry before applying the next, the finish will be stronger, harder and pretty much bubble free.

With any paint application though you have to flat it off afterwards with an abrasive paper (fine grade) then apply a polish to cut it to a deep shine.

Sand it off with very fine wet and dry and you'll get a perfect mirror finish. I've never known spray paint to be perfect until you flatten it.
