The APC paint brushes out quite nice.  My brush strokes are longer and leaner,  less paint on my surface but still covering  as I go.    I still like to do a quick second coat wash (adding some water) and a light sanding, but I’m finding there is a little less sanding , maybe because it brushes out leaner.

CORAL REEF -perfect true coral.

The paint finish can be lightly sanded with a 180-220 grit paper to quickly refine the finish (knocks down any brush strokes, etc).  You can also take a damp rag and rub your edges to reveal your undercolor.  Do all this fiddling BEFORE you seal the paint.

FIREWORKS RED –  American Red.
