I thought I'd be brave and paint the kitchen instead of forking out thousands for a new one. I have done all the prep work to the letter, sanding, primer, sanding etc. But I have now run into trouble. I have spray painted the oil-based undercoat (Dulux) on and after 4 days, the cabinet doors are still tacky. The paint is dry to the touch but as soon as I lift a door up, I leave fingerprints in the paintwork and if I hold it the wrong way, I can even push the paint around, as if the top 'skin' of the paint breaks and underneath it is still very tacky and wet-ish. See the attached picture.
I do know I made a mistake with the paint gun and used too much paint. My question is: will it dry eventually with just more time or is this never going to cure properly?
I don't mind if the answer is: too much paint but it will set eventually! That's the answer I'm hoping for!
