I have put 2 coats of International Schooner on so far with a wet sand in between using 600 wet and dry. I am using a good natural bristle brush to brush it on. Before first coat, after sanding I wiped off with a dry cloth, vacuumed and then wiped over with enamel thinner #1 (as recommended on schooner can).
While the finish looks great from a distance, up close you see hundreds of little specks -dust?
It's hard to see in these small photos but they're pretty much all over, you can feel them with your hand when you caress.... sorry, rub the surface in a manly non-loving sort of way.
Is this normal (the specks I mean not the caressing)? Apart from painting in a vacuum with a borrowed NASA suit I don't know how to avoid specks of dust flying around. I see other glossy finish boats/kayaks on here - do they have specks in them too or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help
p.s. These aren't 'fisheyes' are they? They're different again right?
