Thinner glue is always better for hammer veneering. The water holds the heat. Having glue too thick is almost always the biggest problem beginners have with hot hide glue.
I managed to veneer these panels yesterday in my cold shop with the help of a heat gun for a minute or two on the substrate before applying the glue.
You do need to be fast though.
