Bumps in film after rinse

MKralMKral Posts: 83Member ✭✭
Guys I have been lurking and learning for a few years now and am having fun doing this. I did a welding helmet yesterday for a buddy and and it was a good hit. 90 degree tank, Superbrew, Air Gunsa, Kansas Hydro film, DTP Paint.
After rinse i got a bunch of small, very small bumps all over the pattern. They were not holes just bumps. I ran my finger over them and could knock them down. Sorry no pictures because I didn't think about posting this here until this morning.
So I was going over some old posts on here and I came across one about time from dip to rinse. I have always went right to rinse after I dip. Could this be my issue?
Thanks gang!!

    With that combination? I don't think time to rinse is an issue...DTP is very stable paint and I don't see anything else that would raise a flag...pictures would help otherwise it's just a guessing game...

    I hope you're able to find a solution to this issue, I've had it recently and was left scratching my head...

    yea, need pictures.

    But, in the past when that happened to me (more than once), it was slightly under activated.

    Mine was due to under activation for sure.
