Hut Crystal Coat

>Hi, all. Newbie turner here.

I'm trying out a variety of finishes, and one I've got is Hut Crystal Coat High Gloss Formula. However, it seems to me that I get the glossiest (is that a word?) finish from tung oil... So I was wondering if there is a secret to using the Hut. I've followed directions on the bottle to wipe on just a little while the lathe is stopped and then work up a warmth with moderate pressure with the lathe in... and used a couple of coats... But I've also read people talking about 5 or more coats of some finishes. Any suggestions or tips?

Thanks in advance.
