One coat gave great coverage, no traces of the blue undercoat whatsoever. The second coat gave a smooth and polished finish.
I always wax under glaze to keep the paint from absorbing it, and again over the top to protect the glaze.
I let the stain dry over night and then gave it several light coats of gator hide with a brush and light sanding in between.
