Spray or brush liquid mask?

Hello all,

I just tried a liquid mask (Bob Dively's) for the first time. I brushed it on and it turned out OK except it's a little difficult to get a good even thin coat with a brush. The thick spots take forever to dry. The instructions on the bottle say to spray it, but there's no way it's going through an airbrush at full strength. I was a little leary of thinning it. Has anyone thinned this stuff for spraying? if so, what ratio?

You can thin it with water and spray it, or spray it full strength with an industrial sprayer.

I just brush it in with a good 1.5" wide soft hair brush. 3 coats, brushed in different directions. I usually mask it one day, and then start painting the next..

I have never had problems using a brush, I do 3 layers as well, it's pretty easy to work with as long as you have a pretty thick layer when you're done.
