Did you stir the product ?

Usually the "flattening" agent settles to the bottom of the can very quickly.....

And shine varies among products....what did you use ?

"......measure Once.....cut Twice....

throw that one away and cut a new one...."

thanks Doug for responding. no I did not stir it enough. If I do that will it take the shine down on the next coat? I used min wax oil base
