    Rustoleum question

    Is it just me being in a humid place such as Hawaii, or has anyone else experienced a tacky, gooey feeling when using Rustoleum brand spray paint? Even after I left my JP alone for over 24 hrs, I went to check it out and now I got me some fingerprint identification marks on it

    It takes longer to dry in a humid climate. Also the paint does not "fully" dry for up to two weeks in some cases!

    GRRRRRR... what started to be a happy, fun, sunshiny project has turned into a nightmare. I misted some paint over the JP to get that coveted dirty look and the rustoleum base started to flake up

    I live in Las Vegas, very hot, very little humidity. Spraypaint can dry and be able to touch or a second coat, or be able to wear in 15-30 minutes.
