A few people in the yard have been blown away by what an awesome paint job I have until they get a closer look. The shine makes you think it is perfect until proven otherwise... That is my theory, and I am sticking with it.
If it's any consolation, I have not been able to get Perfection to lose brush marks although I've tried a few times. It's always disappointing when waiting for brush marks to flatten and it doesn't happen. Must be doing something wrong or not using the right thinner. It seems difficult to work with.
