Default Sikkens appilication

Used it a few times, this time using a Purdy soft white china bristle and am not all that happy with the flow. Any other thoughts on good tools to smooooth that product out. These particular doors are very busy..
cheers

I didn't like the brush marks left by a china bristle brush either. I have good luck using a regular all paint corona brush. Cant remember the name of the brushes we use but seems to work very well. Do a sample and see what you think. Chad

What sikkens product are you trying to apply and to what kind of substrate, in what kind of environment?

I recently used Sikkens Cetol Door and Window on two garage doors and a mahogany front door. I used a Purdy Syntox 3" flat brush and had excellent results. I like the Syntox brushes for polyurethanes, but I think that's the only Purdy I use anymore. I've switched to Corona, Wooster, Benjamin Moore, and the ProForm Picasso for everything else.
