I print at home and I agree-premium paper makes all the difference. I tried 3-star paper once and all the edges ended up with that wet look. I use nothing but 4 star now. Also, I don't think painting it on is getting enough resin for it to cure properly. You should find a way to drop it on like the others have said. My DH has unlimited syringes from work and I use them without the needle. That way I know I am putting the same amount on every cap. I pour over 200 at a time and might have one or two run over the edge or get a bubble. HTH
