Like many of you here, I had a tough time applying Veil without it looking like crap because of streaks and drip marks when it dried. I'm pretty meticulous but I just couldn't get it looking right. I think that I found the solution though. This brush that I bought at Lowes for $2.47 is great. I put some Veil in a bowl, got the brush wet and applied Veil. It looks flawless!
