However I can稚 get a smooth finish !
Just finished varnishing the pilot house. Had a few large areas of wall surface as well as window frames, etc. I applied with a small foam roller and tipped with a foam brush. After many years as a B- painter, this technique moved me up to B+. The roller enabled me to cover large areas rapidly with an even application and no holidays. In the past is was always the holidays that caused me to over- brush and leave the ropey look.
This was Epifanes, not two part, but rolling and tipping is a well known technique for two part. The walls were Woodfinish matte and required no tipping at all. The trim was Clear and needed tipping.
