I'm not too happy with my Brightside efforts; at the least the finish is less than faultless, to put it mildly. Using 333 brushing liquid, what dilution have people found advisable for rolling and tipping (and or just brushing)? It occurs to me that even if you don't mind applying a number of coats (and I don't), an attempt to use too much 333 in an attempt to achieve and easily-applied material could result in quicker drying, which could have the effect of premature 'drag' and brush marks. Also, the term 'tipping' initially confused me; I finally found, if I'm correct that it really refers to applying an even coat of paint with a roller, and then going over the entire newly painted surface with a foam, or other good brush, to make things homogenous. I am realizing, more and more, that this ain't exactly like painting the kitchen, and that it is an art, not a science. Any suggestions for attaining that mythical glass finish would be appreciated.
