Can humidity...

affect the way spray paint looks on a model? Can it cause little bubbles to form?

Atmosphere humidity can, though equally you don't want the can cold.

Heat it on a radiator, and make sure the model goes back into a warm, dry room after spraying. But other than that you can spray outside.

I'm not sure about bubbles, but when it's humid out, don't paint. The evaporating vapors from paint don't evaporate so well when theres alot of moisture in the air. Paint in an area that's dry, bright, and with a slight breeze to keep air moving. I used to paint in my cold clammy basement, and never got really nice results. Now, I spray on my front porch .

I spray on the porch, in a cardboard box. Not on the porch of my cardboard box.

I very slightly warm the body up and the can also.

I only spray in a nice warm area on a good day.
