What Are Paint Swirls?
Paint swirls are caused by poor washing techniques including dirty mitts, cloths, brushes and water. Dry wiping can also cause this. Swirls cause flat and dull paint.
What Is Marring?
Marring is only seen in bright light and looks like a wave pattern. Marring is the result of either machine polishing which has been unrefined or buffing to hard.
