  • The surface was not cleaned properly.
  • There was poor ventilation.
  • There was extreme heat, cold and/or humidity.
  • The coating was applied too thick.
  • Excess linseed oil in coating.
  • Excess colorant in paint.
  • The finish coat was applied before the previous coat dried.
Prevention:
  • Make sure to use proper surface preparation.
  • Provide adequate ventilation.
  • Do not add more linseed oil and/or colorant than product is recommended.
