    Re: blistering paint

    Explain "blisters".Does it have the appearance of a bunch of little "fisheyes"?Does it have the appearance of "krinkle" looking finish?

      This is a rattle can product right? They are normally poor quality paints, made to dry fast and be cheap, but sometimes that's what you need. They do not hold up well when exposed to the weather and even worse under water.

        yeah, its a rattle can,it appears krinkled and wrinkled. about 80 percent of the area im painting is good except a few random spots, and I have sanded it and repainted it a few times and it just keeps doing it.

          Sometimes it's just the primer, or a combination of the primer and paint not being compatible.
