A: I gently rotated the can upside down several times to mix it (nothing vigorous). You may also find a clean skinny stick to stir it with (I'm not sure a paint stick would fit). I poured about a half cup into a small container (like a pint-sized plastic to-go soup container) that I dipped a rag into to rub on the wood. I refilled the cup as I worked (it was a large job). It worked great for me. Any streaks in the finish eventually smoothed out as the varnish dried. I switched out my gloves and the rags when they got too sticky to manage. If I had varnish left over, I poured it back in the can, but typically did not have to do that since I worked in small batches.
A: Thank you for reaching out, Kate. You would need to apply a coat of the Rust-Oleum Watco Wipe-On Poly using a good quality lint-free rag or cloth. Simply pour the product onto the rag and then wipe on. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5
A: It is supposed to be. But it is so thick and sticky to be used as a wipe on poly
A: You can thin it with mineral spirits.
