Its messy, real messy. First step is make sure you mix the whole can thoroughly for roughly 5 minutes because oil paint tends to settle and in so doing separate like oil and water (literally). Make sure you have lots of paint thinner on hand and the floor covered with sheets because it is a pain to get rid of when it drips.
Get a new paint brush or be prepared to throw away the old one once you are done. The oil paint is thick so when you at thinner to it, it just creates more and more paint which is impossible to clean up once it start spreading and drying on everything. So you might as well trash the paint brush because there is no way that you are going to get it fully clean without adding 10 gallons of paint thinner.
And do not try to be smart and add water to the thinner because water simply makes the paint float on the surface creating a bigger mess.
