I have painted some plastic stuff with a craft paint specifically for
plastic. However, after 1 week it has not dried. It is still tacky to
the touch. I am considering using a clear polyurethane over the
paint in hopes that it might leave a dry surface. Can anyone
recommend this or have another approach? The paint will
ultimately be up against clothing.
I agree. Adding another coat of almost anything on top of a non-dry
coat will only make things worse. Was the paint you used quite old?
I would try to scrape the tacky paint off if possible - see if mineral
spirits softens it, or maybe acetone? What is the solvent recommended
for cleanup? Anyway, when you start from scratch, I'd try newer paint,
a different brand of paint, or paint thinned somewhat with mineral
spirits (or appropriate solvent).
Sorry and good luck,
