i guess mr. Minichillo is in Florida by now.
~wishing him and family all the best.
REGARDING 'LINES IN PAINT':
i have appreciated what i have just read here at this forum..

I have done everything recommended and still have lines in my finished project.

i am using a paint called "Graham aqua borne ceramic paint."
The reason i am using this is that i am painting a formica countertop, and this paint is supposed to do the job.
http://www.empirepaint.net/info.htm
but i still get little lines..
Oh how i wish this particular paint was more 'self levelling'..
i guess there is not much i can do.

i have only done one small bit of countertop..should i quit while i am ahead.i have applied a base coat, which was 'lined'; i sanded, and applied a second coat, which is 'lined.'
would a third coat level things out?

help..please, i am in a real pickle if you know what i mean.
(well, since i am in the kitchen, it might as well be a pickle!)
thank you in advance i hope

ps.. can i use one of those little disposable painting 'sponges in the shape of a paintbrush' for a smoother application? would that work.?
the product calls for synthetic bristle.
thank you again.
al
