The secret of good painting is correct viscosity of paints and the temperature. I use lacquer based paint and mixed with lacquer flo for controlling temperature and humidity changes. Lacquer thinner is for thinning only that you can add everytime the viscosity becomes low. I use 1 inch roller (cloth and not foam) but sometimes it is much better to use a wider brush specially using lacquer, dries quickly. Do not apply too thick coats. Let it dry first.
