I realize that I still need to give the screen some time to cure but if I see the same results after a couple of days, should I spray on another coat?
That would be the conventional wisdom. Hazy text means there is too much infused light behind the painted surface. Since your paint is now thinned, applu another coating. Don't be worried about applying too much, just go at it in a manner you do not have any drips or runs. One coat, then get away and wait until it's dry, then test again.
The MinWax adultrated paint takes more than a few short hours to cure to somethin akin to hardness however, and if your not applying heat like I often do, or waiting a full 24 hours+ before testing, you might be getting a result that is not indicative of what it will look like in 2-3 days.
If your patience is well practiced, waiting for that amount of time and doing another test mught just result in a pefectly done Light Fusion, for it is the balance between thickness, and light returned that produces the "Glow" without haze. If on the other hand, after such a wait, a haze on text is still apparent, you cannot do wrong by applying another even coating.
