After all the different methods I've read about filling the weave like foam rollers, squeegees, brushes, etc.. I settled on the simplest. I smeared it with my gloved hand. It's fast, accurate, and spreads a nice even layer. Am I missing something? I don't think I got too much on, it has taken three coats nicely and I don't think more will be needed. I don't see any problems so far but will know for sure in the morning. I use the grocery store cheap cleaning gloves like playtex only cheaper. They are tougher than latex and can be reused several times.
