Smack, if you're asking about technique, the first rule is don't spare the varnish. I layup the start wet and spread it about a foot. Then I back brush it to make sure it flows. The final stroke is with the weight of the brush only towards to dry part to take out any bubbles or froth. Then ya load up the brush, wipe off one side, start about a foot from the wet edge and stroke towards it. Stroke back and forth about six or so times to cover and repeat the bubble stroke. Always keep a wet edge. Once ya commit to varnish, VARNISH. Masking is key as is prep. With good masking you can lay on the varnish without worries of getting it where it don't belong. I'll knock this coat back with 220, put another four coats on, sand with 320 and then do a final coat. It'll look like glass when finished.
