Try using a toothpick and try poking out the holes. What your problem is is that you applied the paint too heavy. What you want to do is use some primer on it and then paint on in thin layers. Hope this helped! Also, you can remove the paint with mineral oil. :thumb:P

1. Make sure the environment isn't too cold.

2. You painted way too heavy. Spray very thin layers. Your first two coats will look like it isn't completely covering the original paint.

3. Give it plenty of time to dry before adding more layers.

Strip all the paint and start over, everything is fine smile.gif

When painting, try not to leave things with holes in flat against a surface.

Have them from an old wire coathanger and spray them in the air.

If you spray down on a surface, the paint will pool up in the mesh and fill the holes.
I recommend you strip the paint with some hot water and soap and start again.

Good luck! Post in here again with your next go!

Good job, the one on the right looks okay.

When you're painting:

1. Hang the filter up by one of the big holes, use a coathanger.
2. Hold the spray can 30cm away and spray left to right in strips
3. once it's covered on that side, walk off and wait 2 hours.
4. Turn it around (Still hanging from the same hole) and repeat steps 2 & 3.
5. Hang it from another corner, then repeat 2,3 & 4.

Good luck bro!

I'll try to find the post but a tip I read was letting the can sit in warm water before painting. Something about the paint molecules.

EDIT: found it

As others have stated:
- warm environment
- lay it flat across a container so just the corners are supported, the flat surface underneath makes it difficult to paint
- warm the paint can up
- shake it well (30-40 seconds between sessions, 5-10 seconds between every stroke)
- very light coats
