    Re: painting doors

    you must be applying too much paint......streach the paint out more applying a thinner coat!

    yep
    apply multiple thin coats.
    even a light sanding between [wet n dry] to get that really good finish.

    Use a sponge roller and make sure you spread it out well,Then drag a paint brush from bottom to top in one stroke.

    A good quality brush and spread the paint out as much as you can.

    Re: painting doors

    dont use a roller crap finish for the best result use a brush
    one dip do three equal length strokes down 24inch the way then paint it diagonally to spread the paint and then paint up/down that takes it back with the grain just one dip no runs perfect finish
