Took a minute to figure out... but was great once we did!
At first, we attempted to apply the product like paint- with limited success. After a very helpful phone call to the staff at Country Chic, we were informed that applying the product with a sponge using strokes going in one direction would give us much better results- and that definitely was the case! Because we were going for a completely metallic look, we needed more coats than we initially though (I believe we wound up going through about 2 containers, versus the one we had ordered initially). But, the result was definitely what we were hoping for... even if we messed up a bit initially!
