I tried the hair dryer idea and it worked GREAT! I didn't even have to touch up any spots.

Answer for What causes a latex paint to bubble after it is rolled onto the wall?

Thank you guys! I'm renewing a room; new drywall, primed a wall from a day before. So as I just finished painting the walls, I felt the humidity raised up and an hour after it started raining while I just almost finish the ceiling I start noticing the bubbles….Like the guy did I poked every single of them and gave them a rub and it worked. Now I just need the second layer. GL

So yeah, I just popped like a million bubbles with a pin then lightly massaged each bubble individually. I also played some soft music and lit a few aroma candles during the massage process. I think this is what did the trick. My wall has turned out beautifully. Thanks for the tip.

What you have to do is to get a pin and poke the bubble lightly. Then use a hair dryer to blow dry the moisture out of the bubble. Then lightly use your finger to message the bubble as if you are trying to stick the paint back on the wall. Please note the paint that I used is a water base type. After that the wall is perfect. Light brush touching up may required. The cause is the moisture behind the new coat of paint. To fix it is to get the moisture out of the bubble. Hope this help.

Steven Gerrard sounds like he has it. I had a lot of bubbles in a small bathroom where I am sure the air flow is not good for painting. Thanks, Steven

Whenever it has happened to me down the years…it usually was dust still on the walls. Maybe there was dust still left even after you wiped down.

Air circulation. I'm an amateur who had the same problem. Followed all the advice from the internet and the guys in the paint section: paint at the "right" room temp, "right" humidity, new roller, make sure the surface is clean, dry, primed and at room temperature. Ended up painting the same hallway six times, changing things up each go round because of all this (ultimately) useless advice.

All the painting created an orange peel effect, so I had to do a mud skim coat and sand it all back down to recreate a smooth surface. Finally asked myself why this hallway was blistering so much more than all the other rooms I had painted. The difference was it didn't have vents or sufficient airflow. Painted the sixth coat with a fan (on low) aimed down the hall, drastically fewer bubbles. Put the fan on the bubbles that did appear, and by the time the paint dried they were gone. Has to do with moisture/solvents trying to evaporate/escape from the paint, presumably the air movement helps the process. Hope this helps someone.

Sometimes this happen when you have used a hot drywall mud to patch the walls before you paint. The best thing to do to avoid this is to use a good primer before your repaint and keep the room warm. Another help is to use a good roller cover.

Answer for What causes a latex paint to bubble after it is rolled onto the wall?

This painting problem is called blistering and is usually caused by excessive moister under the newly applied paint film or surface contamination.

It is possible when you wiped down the walls you deposited moister that affected the paint, but this is very rare. A better possibility is some kind of surface contamination. Many things can affect the paint; these include soap and grease. Unfortunately, there is no way to know for sure.

The best way to deal with this paint problem is to lightly sand the bubbled paint, feathering the edges if possible. Spot prime with a good fast drying universal primer and apply some spackling paste if necessary to hide the bubbled areas. Make sure to reprime the spackling paste before repainting.
