I have painted and the paint will not dry, it feels dry but if i lay anything on it magazines, etc. it sticks.


You have not mentioned what kind of paint you have used, however, here are a few ideas.
We might accidentally hit on the one.
Some paints, such as latex or enamel, can do this if the first coat of paint is not completely "cured" before you add the second coat.
To be completely "cured", paint has to dry and harden for a set amount of time.
You also did not mention your location, but temperature & humidity can affect the drying time as well.
If the weather or the room is cold and/or damp, that can keep the paint from drying.
The colder and the damper, some paint will not "cure" at all!
If you used an automotive paint, properly mixed paint sometimes has "dryers" added to the paint to help it dry, but the same applies about the temperature and the humidity.
Automotive paint that is meant to be sprayed on cannot be brushed on, for the same reasons, it may not dry.
God bless your efforts.

Tip

Leather Upholstery Cleaning


For those fortunate enough to own a BMW 2002 with leather upholstery, but who may be sweating about what to do with the color wearing off or cracks developing, try Mar Hyde Vinyl Color Spray. I have used only black but it seems to be a perfect treatment for the leather. Clean the leather first with saddle soap, using very little water to make the foam, or with mineral spirits such as lacquer thinner, used very sparingly. Spray the Mar Hyde on. It dries instantly and bonds to the leather without flaking or peeling. It gives an absolutely new appearance to the leather without drying it out as the water-based color compounds do. Mar Hyde should be available at most paint stores or paint distributors.

Wen water get inside the distributor it can become dry?


Yes, you can dry out a wet distributor cap. The best and fastest thing to use is acetone; you can get it in the paint section of a hardware store. Acetone has a very high affinity for water, it dries really fast and has very low toxicity; they use it for finger nail polish remover. [Most finger polish remover has oil in it, but some is marked 100%, make sure you don't get the stuff with oil in it or it will attract dirt; so will WD-40 no matter how much they claim you can use it for drying out distributor caps.]
Just make sure all of the acetone has dried before reinstalling the distributor cap or it will burn inside the cap and possibly crack it.

Is there too much moisture today to paint ,dan Edwards paint the outside of a house


Hi Sheri

I trust you are well

I would suggest you paint in a dry sunny day when your walls are free from damp and moisture, all paint will take best on dry walls.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

What kind of prep work do I need to do before I paint the outside of my house?


Not sure how this pertains to a car or truck.....but you should scrape or high pressure power wash the entire outside to remove any dirt, contaminates, or loose paint. Then a coat of quality primer and finally a good coat of quality paint. Done correctly with quality materials you should end up with a paint job that will easily last 10 years or better.

Painted 4 days ago & paint still not dry


Modern auto paints such as urethanes, acrylic enamels and others need catalysts or hardeners added, usually 1/2 to 1 pint per gallon. Call your local auto paint supplier and tell them what brand you used. Heat always helps drying time speed up. Retarders can be used as well as fast dry thinners depending on your local conditions. Vintage alkyd enamels needed heat or a full hot day to dry and stayed sensitive for weeks.

I put a tape in and it keeps flipping sides without playing and pops out and says Error. It even does it with a CD-Cassette Adapter. Before the Cln came up and I pressed on the eject button and that...


Cassette decks have sensors on the reels which tells the deck when the tape is at the end. When the reel stops the deck switches the direction of the tape and sometimes the position of the head(depending on the deck design). Most common problem is the tape is hard to turn, or the deck won't turn it ( deck thinks it's at the end, click, still won't turn, click, won't turn, click) you should fast forward and/or rewind your tapes from start to finish once in a while to keep them lined up(narrow spool/less friction), you shouldn't have to but it works. BUT,...your problem sounds like a slipping or broken belt/or dirt causing the problem. Take the deck out to have a look and clean the capstans(rubber rollers)belts,heads with alcohol and a Q-tip while your at it. Dirt's usually the main culprit and if you do have some other problem, cleaning it is always a win/win (It will also sound better clean)

I just want to know what is water base paint and how its used & what material are used before painting car. thank u


the basic shell of the car is cathodic dipped,then painted with a filler/primer before water based paint is applied,the final coat is dried by radio waves(really)any excess is recycled back to the paint plant ready for the next car.NO solvents are used in the whole process.YOU CANNOT BUY THIS PAINT.it is very similar to normal emulsion paint,although it will not dry in the air,it has to be heat dried/sealed.(in an oven)(check out you tube bmw z3)
