Default Tiny bubbles

Using sherwin Williams solo paint.

Second house we've used this paint second time we've sprayed the cabinets. Second time thousands of tiny air looking bubbles appear on the cabinet flats. Doesn't happen on the crown are moldings.

Cabinets were puttied, caulked, putty sanded cabinets vacuumed out primed sanded vacuumed the painted in that order.

Do you have any idea why we are getting these bubbles. It only happens when we use this paint.

Can't figure out how to input photo sorry

What would Don Ho do? I know--not that funny, but I smiled a little as I typed.

Some products are much more sensitive to various spray techniques, so you might be getting those bubbles due to:
-holding the gun too close to the sprayed surface
-passing over an area repeatedly
-spraying at too high of pressure
-spraying with too small of tip
-applying too thick of coat

Try again, using one of the above suggestions at a time to easily narrow down the cause/solution. If none of the above help, consider an extender/retarder. If the surface is properly prepared and atmospheric conditions are sufficient, one, (or more than one), of the above should fix the prob. If you can, please post results, so we can all learn from it.

Haha... what? Ben Moore doesn't make Bullseye, that's a Zinnser product.

Are you cleaning as well as vacuuming, or just vacuuming? As an experiment, could you try just washing it down before painting (and let it dry, of course)?
