I used too much liquid white it made my work on it harder. Which makes for an unhappy painter. So make double sure you are quite satisfied with how much is on. Too little isn't helpful either



I learned a trick from Bill Alexander (he mentions it in several of his shows) to avoid too much liquid white. Once you covered the canvas and spread it out with long horizontal and vertical strokes, clean and dry your brush. Now with the clean dry brush go over it again with long vertical and horizontal strokes and it will take off the excess and ensure that you have sufficient but not too much liquid white on the canvas.
Hope this helps. :)

Like Tom sayed and check your Canvas wird your Fingers in every corner and in the middle . If you have a nice Fingerprint , you are on a good way 😎
