paint on walls not drying even


sorry, took so long to respond.......I ended up repainting whole room. did not re-cut... you can see a slight difference in color (not sheen). talked with a professional painter in the neighborhood, his opinion is that 1. the brand of paint and 2. second can was not mixed with same concentration as first.

to further frustrate me, my walls are still somewhat tacky to touch, and if anything is touching walls for any length of time, it sticks then peels all paint off right down to drywall. I will never use valspar again.

thanks for the input, sorry took so long to respond, I was loading my roller with lots of paint, it was dripping wet. the paint expert in my neighborhood, said the second can of paint probably was not mixed correctly, and that Valspar is not his choice of paint.. too many problems with it, one that I am experiencing is that my walls are still a bit tacky to touch and things stick to it if left touching walls for any length of time. lesson learned.... no more valspar

DC, what color are you using, not the exact name, but the shade? Is it a greenish or goldish shade? The term is blocking (right on the tip of my tongue, thanks to Brush) which is the quality of the paint with regard to things sticking to it. Wouldn't be a good choice for shelving.

I'm still hunting for the best wb enamel with the least amount of blocking- at least one that you don't have to wait a couple of weeks cure time before it is reasonably usable.
I like Aura satin, but it has this prob, (to a much smaller degree than this poster).

I like the waterborne Satin Impervo, dries hard, levels nicely for a latex and has somewhat of an oil finish look. Has a bit of a learning curve.

The Impervo looks fantastic. I had to learn to really slather it on to get the brush lines to fall out well. The one drawback I found was that it forms a very rubbery sheet of paint than can peel very easily in large sheets ... even on lightly sanded surfaces. You might want to use a primer under it, or test a small patch.

I used the WB imp before I use Aura- and felt aura laid out better and recoated faster. Both have a learning curve that has similarities and differences. And both need time to cure to be less sticky.

I'd like to try the Aura semi for trim, but I'm just mastering the wb Impervo. Absolutely about the recoat time, WB Impervo is eight hours, but I cheat a bit sometimes. BM claims it is block resistant, and I've found it cures pretty hard fairly quickly.
