I did my best to keep dust away (made a little drying booth) but ended up with a couple bits anyway (esp. since it dries so slowly). After each coat cured I scuffed it up with sandpaper and added another layer, then wait more, repeat. It builds really well and has lasted ... I live where it gets below 0 in the winter and can hit 115 in the summer but it still looks great after four years.
I don't have any way of spraying that, do you think I'd be successful brushing it on?
