problems with tacky crown emulsion

Postby triciaevans » Mon Aug 20, 2012 9:19 pm

I used crown white silk emulsion on superfresco wallpaper. This has dried extremely tacky. Why ? I have used emulsion on this wallpaper in my home and never had problems before. Think I usually by Dulux, but surely emulsion is emulsion. I always avoid the cheap stuff and stick to known brand. Don't want to do anything to make things worse as this is on my parents bedroom and they are in their 80's. Help!

Vinyl silk is dreadful paint and is sticky, maybe would have been better to thin the first coat with some water first
