Default pin holes in gesso

I am in a fix. I have gessoed three supports sucessfully. Thought this gesso is not that big of a deal. Now months later I am trying to gesso
a new panel. I am on my fourth try and it is looking like the tiny holes
are visable---again. These are so small I can not feel them at all.

I have followed Ralph Mayer, Altoon Sultan and this sites instructions,
trying different things at different times.

I guess I'm beginning to wonder, that if this process is so difficult/fickle
should I buy these gesso panels? I enjoy making them, but is
it always like this? Does it get to the point that you know that you can
gesso a panel successfully?

Of course I would appreciate any help or thoughts.
