Tricky and I wouldnt attempt to do it with a brush...id say use a short pile hard foam roller.

Thin the first coat out to it sinks in to the surface and rub down very very lightly with fine grade abrasive paper between coats

You may get away with two coats..robably three though

Any varnish or stain will enhance the look of natural wood, but how do you enhance the look of MDF.
