Experiments With Latex-ite

I applied I hope the last coat today, filling in a couple of depressions and squaring up the area resurfaced as best I could.  As I finished the bucket, a solution an annoying problem occurred to me.

Latex-ite is mostly asphalt cement so it is viscous enough that it does not spread out under gravity much at all. Raking it with the intended tool is only somewhat effective at making a flat even surface.  The bottom of the bucket never completely empties, even upside down for many minutes.  To get that last bit of brownie mix out, and get a surface that flattens out under gravity, I threw some water in, mixed, and poured it as a last layer.  So far, it looks better than the raked surface.
