I've been using thin rollers w/foam brushes and today used a bristle brush w/foam brush. I'm finding it difficult to get even coverage. Lots of holidays, as it were. I bought some addition shop lights today, which helps me see what I am doing, but also accentuates the flaws. I've got 4 coats of thinned schooner gold on and everyone else thinks it looks great, but I know I could do better.
How about spraying? is it easier to get a smooth coat? I used to use an airless sprayer when I painting houses, but I know this is an entirely different animal.
