Start subsequent strokes of the brush in a dry area, working toward the wet area.

This technique avoids creating lap marks.

Raise the brush slightly and feather the edge. Feathering paint into a previously painted patch keeps the paint even and smooth from one stroke to another.

Reverse the direction of the brush, and lightly stroke back over the coat you just applied. This technique will set the paint.
