That’s what the MS is for. To thin it enough that it soaks into the wood pores. The second coat stays on top a little more.

One coat isn’t 100% sealing the wood. There just isn’t enough solids. That’s why it takes so many coats to get any measurable water resistance.

Theoretically you could not thin it as much after 1-2 coats to get more build. Most just stick with one formula and more coats.
