Made sure to stir the new can really well. I don’t thin it with anything. No visible condensation on the door. Most of what I brushed on “cracked” within 10-20 seconds, so i aborted before doing the entire door. The only thing I can think of that was different is how I cleaned the brush. I’ve been using an environmentally friendly paint thinner followed by water (no soap). The brush would get more and more stiff with each use and I would eventually need to throw it out. For this new brush (same brand as previous), I cleaned with a newly purchased gallon of mineral spirits (per the poly cleanup instructions) and then with soap (Dawn) and water. I believe I rinsed it well. I didn’t pay much attention, but the brush may have been slightly damp still(?). I flexed the bristles and pulled some loose ones out before I used it and don’t recall thinking the brush was wet. Needless to say, my first inclination was that the brush cleaning had something to do with the finish issue.
