I haven't used it a lot, but what kind of wood are you applying it over?
Could be the pores in the wood, might need filling or will correct on a later coat.
Could be the room tempature.
Make sure your only brushing over in one direction and not rebrushing.
I've also had good luck using a terry cloth towel or piece of it and doing light coats.
