sticky Kilz


I want to paint the linen cabinet doors in the bathroom. They are wood stained. I cleaned them well, let them dry, they applied latex Kilz. After several days, they are sticky to touch. Should I have sanded first? Now how to get the sticky Kilz off and start over.

Thanks

Kilz would not be the first choice of many here but what is done is done. It should be drying regardless of what is underneath. Adhesion could be a problem. Kilz might have had to be peeled off after down the road though.

Did you stir it thoroughly even after you had the store shake it? If you did not, the binders, drying agents and pigment may not have mixed together. If you did? I would take the can back, explain what happened and get your money back.

As for what to do now? You cannot put more over what is failing. Since it is sticky, you are going to have to scrape and not sand it off. Get one of the pull type scrapers and some extra blades and it should go rather fast. I hate them but would wear gloves for this is the gooey gunk will get on you. Make sure you have a drop cloth under all too.

Once all is scraped off. Clean with some warm water and TSP from the paint store. Fill and sand any dings you made with the scraper (there should be none to just a few if you used a SHARP blade).

Prime again with either a solvent based alkyd product like Zinsser Cover Stain or Benjamin Moore Fresh Start. Or you can use a waterbased primer like Zinsser 123. Proceed with two coats of finish.

Hello,

Before you proceed with another product, please let me know what product you used.

It sounds like you used KILZ Premium which does stay a little tacky, if this is the case, you are good to go and ready to paint.

However, if it's not Premium, I need to know what product you used to provide better direction.

Thanks!
