Glazed wall on Fri - surface still tacky


I am new to faux painting, but took a chance and used some oil glaze (http://www.valsparglobal.com/val/res...al_effects.jsp) on my textured wall 2 days ago. It is a black tint over a choc brown wall and the final product looks pretty cool - kind of like a leather design.
My question is this, it's still not dry! If I put my finger on it, it leaves a mark and seems to rub off. I didn't apply that much during the process (I don't think).
Does anyone know how long it takes for this to dry? I am contemplating wiping it off with a dry cotton rag, but I don't want to if I just need to keep waiting. Does anyone have any ideas?

OIL-based Glaze?!

Wow...we could hardly GIVE that stuff away, until a painter who liked its (usually) longer "open"/work time finally bought our last couple qts.

Depending on you homes' air-flow, humidity, etc., it may be a WEEK or so b4 it feels completely dry.
Cure-out time is even longer.

Dang, ok. Yeah, the oil glaze was recommend to me because it's more forgiving and easier to manipulate. I wasn't aware that it would take this long to dry though. I guess I'll just be patient and wait.

That looks pretty neat! I like it. I would love to do a glaze on the island cabinet I am building for my kitchen.

That looks great. but I wonder what it would look like using metallics.
If the glaze still isn't dry in 7 days, you might want to lightly wipe down a small corner (just to sample) using white vinegar. Sometimes that helps the drying process.
