looking to make my own dust filter and not sure whether the holes in this are too big or small? Also If I were to paint it would it get entirely clogged up?

At least some of it, that might not be the best possible solution but it's better than nothing

I have actually just used a fine nylon screen mesh and been able to filter some dust. As for painting, with mesh that fine bet at least 30 to 50% clog.

You could always just buy a sample and try it as it's cheap.

there are finer ones available on ebay, would I be better off going with those, I just thought that the finer ones may be too restrictive?

Looks too fine to me, and painting it will seal it up like a plastic bag.. you can use a much larger mesh than that and still catch a good bit of the "bigger" dust. Keeping the fine dirt out is difficult, positive pressure in the case is the best way to keep the smaller stuff out because if it comes in, it gets blown right out.

You should be able to find something more suitable on here.

Also, you might be interested in reading up on this.
