Kilz Primer on plywood


I want to replace top portion of my desk. I made it with a plywood and want to finish with high glossy latex.

I sanded, vacuumed and tack clothed. Then I applied a water based Klitz primer, a white one for both oil and water based paint.

Question I have is that it does not seem to dry out enough. Instruction states that it dries to touch in about 5 minutes and dires completely in 4 hours. Now it is actually dried but I feel the surface is somewhat sticky when I touch it. I left over night in the room, and still feel sticky though nothing comes out.

I sanded with 150 grit. I did not see any powder coming out, but it left very small balls, less than 1mm in diameter. The surface is getting smoother anyway. Is this stickiness normal and I just go ahead with final paint, or to wait until it completely dries out?

Thank you in advance for your opinions and suggestions.

ok here's what i think the water base primer is activating the glue in the ply wood . get it smooth as you can then prime it with zinsser cover stain oil,a qt.should be enough.very fine sand dust off then paint.see what others say, but thats what id do

Yes, it is KILZ PREMIUM, Primer/Sealer/Stainblocker, Interior-Exterior Water base, Tintable White...

So I guess I should have not used this for that purpose. How dumb

So I guess water based primer is not for the plywood. I read this in one of the DIY web site. Oh well.
Then my next question is do I sand the surface to get the Kilz primer off or to use zinsser on top of Kilz?

Thanks in advance
