An effect that occurs where a paint will not remain spread in a continuous film.
Areas of a wet film where the coating material recedes or 'pulls away' from the surface.
An application of colour that was intended to result in a covering of even thickness, but resulted instead in running streaks and bare spots, usually because of poor wetting of the surface.
In painting, streaks, bare spots, running paint (normally from over-wetting). Usually a mistake, the desired result being uniform coverage, but poor technique causes the streaking and incomplete coverage.
A defect in which a wet ink or varnish recedes from small areas of the surface leaving either no coating or an attenuated one. (See reticulation).
