I doubt its the paint. Even a cheap can of spray paint should leave a decent enough surface after it drys.

I think the issue may be with the plane and or prep work. What kind of plane is it? I ask because I have had some planes that were not made by Stanley that had a really rough metal casting almost like it was bumpy.

Also did you strip all the old finish off? Was it sanded before you painted? Did you use any primer?
