Paint - not sure if its not dry or streaked?


Hi, I been reading this forum and decided it was time to register because I have a question.

I have painted a few rooms so far and all came out perfect, no streaks or anything. I have been using benjamin moore paint and I always prime.

After doing this latest room it seems good so far. I did the 2nd coat today and a few hours later saw some spots (which I think was bad lighting or from light coming in thru the windows) but regardless I rolled an area around it, just incase - before I clean up. It is now about 3 hours since I finished and I went to check on the room and the paint looks pretty dry but I can still see exactly where I recently painted if I look for it (most wouldnt notice).

Its not bumpy or have an edge or anything, I can just see the boxed area I recently painted (I guess in reality making that 3 coats on that spot).

I was thinking maybe its still a bit wet since the paint underneath it was put on today too. I am just dreading rolling it again for a 3rd day tomorrow.

All the other rooms I have done and if I noticed a spot and rolled that area a bit (again creating a 3rd coat) it always dried evenly.

Is this the case and should dry evenly by tomorrow does the whole wall need to be rolled again?

I use Benjamin Moore primer (tinted) and Benjamin Moore flat paint.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

just checked again its now been over 5 hours of drying and it is still the same. I can see the outline box of the area I went over. Tomorrow morning should I roll the entire wall again, not just spots - to make it seamless and even?

I assume if I do the 3 walls that its affecting it should still match the walls and not be noticeably darker than the walls that are fine and do not need to be painted again?

Probably the best idea.

What it sounds like is flashing. That's where you are bringing a wet edge onto an already dry surface. It would be even worse if you did it with a brush. Cutting in and rolling that wall again should fix it.
