The product will have to be sprayed if it is to work at all. Rolling would be nice, but it won't work. It will not have the desired effect at all.
I am basically using that exact product right now.
If you wish to discuss further, then e-mail me.
Here, let me add this:
Curators of museums sometimes have to repair the frames of 2-300-whatever year old paintings, in period era frames. Sometimes the guilding of the frames is falling apart. Sometimes the carved wood pieces break off, and have to be repaired. So, a craftsman is brought in to carve an exact replica of the missing piece. The craftsman does so, and paints the new piece and glues it in. Lots of difficult and time consuming work to fix a valuble frame.
Recently, some of these folk have turned to using some of this paint product in a GEL form to replace the wood carving phase entirely. They mix up the requisite color in the GEL form, and place the gel in the frame, in the area of the missing carved piece. The craftsman shapes the gel to the desired shape, and then lets it dry.
There is no noticable loss in mass, and/or color shift through the drying. The match they achieve in 'covering up' the bad area is better than before (with the carved, painted wood piece) and the GEL form paint does not loose color fastness over time. (well I am sure it DOES, but what time period are we talking about?) When I was told this, I thought, 'now THAT'S impressive...'
