I primed some unpainted door casing and brick mold a couple of days
ago with Kilz Premium and the paint is still sticky. It was raining
while I was painting outside on the carport. I left the strips
outside in the sun yesterday afternoon, but it's still sticky. Is
there anything that will get it to dry or am I going to have to start
That's the answer you'll get from paint stores - high humidity greatly
extends dry time. Especially true for rust preventive paints. I've
had them take up to 2 weeks to thoroughly dry in high humidity.
A) There is something wrong with your primer. Test it on a clean piece
of new wood.
B) There is something awry with your painted parts. Toss them if if A)
turns out OK.
Odds are the primer is a latex that is way over the hill or
contaminated. Try an oil base...they're less prone to problems.
