I have the jet painted, using rattle can silver paint.  I did several thin coats and it came out well.

On the other hand, I tried using the Holloway Quick-Shine on some spare pieces of sprue, as a test.   I brushed it on and
I let it sit for a day or two to dry.  Unfortunately, it doesn't look too good.  It looks streaky and mottled, not a smooth gloss finish like I expected.    Could I have done something wrong?

I brushed on a thin layer with a soft brush, careful to not lay it on thick.  There were no visible bubbles.

The basement where I worked was on the cold side, maybe 51degF.   Could that be an issue?
I am running out of scrap sprue to test with and I want to figure it out before I apply it to the model.

Any advice?
