* Applying paint unevenly causes painting, poor sheen uniformity
* Failure to prime a porous surface, or a surface with varying degrees of porosity
* Over-thinning of the paint causes poor sheen uniformity

Painting Poor Sheen Uniformity Solutions:

* New surfaces should be primed/sealed before applying the topcoat to ensure a uniform surface.
