I just want to note that I didn’t realize that a tiny amount of vaseline goes a long ways: I got too much on my project, and now I have a mess. Too much of the top coat came off, so now I’m trying to figure out how to clean up the mess and start over. On another site, I saw someone using the side of a candle to rub the edges, and that technique might work a lot better for sloppy folks like me.
