You did not state what paint, on what surface, what is temperature and humidity.

paint usually do not dry if it is two pack and you used only part a (body of the paint) and did not add any part b (hardener). hardener allow chemical reaction to occur and creates then solid, this type of paint is often used on car bodies, boats, hard wearing flooring and similar surfaces. if this is the case, you need to strip and clean whole area, prepare it again, whip off with weak solution of appropriate solvent mixed with bit of hardener (about 1hardener to 25solvent by volume should be fine) rest it for 48hrs, fine abrade with 120 or 150 paper or screen and then paint again following instructions on the label. this usually involves two parts urethane based paints.

another - it can be oil paint - oil paints,, especially good quality (artist quality), based on linseed or cannabis oil, take up to few years to dry, they drying process is affected as well by humidity and temperature, if temperature drops below 10centigrade (50f) process of drying virtually stops, it will fully stop at about 2 to 4 centigrade (35f - 40f), humidity will greatly affect this process as well, very low humidity (below 10%) and very high humidity (above 80%) will hamper drying process, low by forming impenetrable surface skin and not allowing body of the paint to dry, high by preventing vapour pressure to evaporate.

please provide bit more info and then we may find better advice...

Epoxy paint on garage floor


You test moisture presence with plastic sheeting and tape. Tape a 1 foot square of plastic sheeting to the floor after you dry it out with a blow dryer. Check back in a couple of days. If its wet, you have a seepage issue.

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

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 have an old white refrigerator that works fine, just looks awful. What can I do to the face to make it look nice. I have wooden oak kitchen cabinets and a tile floor.


Paint it with white enamel.
Enamel Paint finishes in high gloss if you want that sort of finish.
Always paint in a dust free invironment with plenty of ventiallation.
With the expensive cost of many home appliances, sometimes replacing an old refrigerator is out of the question, especially if it still works well.
This can be a problem if you've recently painted your kitchen or if you're just sick of looking at an old, outdated fridge.
Instead of learning to live with your boring or unattractive refrigerator, you can give it a bright new look with a few coats of paint.
Mix a few tablespoons of vinegar into a bucket of warm soapy water.
Use this mixture to clean the refrigerator.
Scrub away any grease, dirt or other grime with your soapy water and a stiff bristled scrub brush. Wipe the refrigerator dry with a towel when it is clean.

Use painter's tape to cover parts of the refrigerator you do not want to paint such as the handle or the grate at the bottom of the refrigerator.

Apply a coat of appliance paint to your refrigerator with a paint roller to prime the surface.
You can also purchase appliance paint in a spray can and use it to spray paint your refrigerator.


Sand the paint with an extra fine grit sanding sponge when it is completely dry.
Try to make the surface as smooth as possible and then wipe away any dust created with a clean towel.


Paint the refrigerator with an enamel paint tinted to the desired color and a paint roller.
You can use oil-based or latex-based enamel depending on your preferences.
Oil paints usually have a stronger odor than latex paints but they may last longer.

Apply a second coat of paint when the first coat is completely dry.

Sand the final coat of paint when it is dry with a wet extra fine sanding sponge.
Spray the refrigerator with water while you work to keep it damp and keep sanding until the paint is smooth and shiny.


Remove all of the painter's tape from your painted refrigerator.

Spray paint on metal door cracked in some spots. first coats were fine and then just a few place cracked. how can we fix this?


Repainting without adequate drying time will cause this. Make sure paint is dry. Use 180 grit sandpaper in swirling pattern to sand down the problem areas, idea is to feather edge the paint so you don't feel and ridges between the transition layers when you sweep your hand over them. Then prime the bare metal, then repaint entire door for best results.

We have an older knemore Mod 11?713400s/washer and


Clean the old paint surface with TSP cleaner, then sand the surface lightly with ~400 grit wet or dry sandpaper (wet--dip in bucket of warm water often while sanding and sand carefully in any corners). Cut a 1/4-paper-length strip from a full sheet and fold twice into a 1/3-width square. Sand using just your fingers to hold the paper--no sanding block. Wash with clean hot water, and dry with a clean cloth (no paper towels). Mask off the area you don't want painted, then using an epoxy-type paint spray can, spray the area evenly and lightly for the first coat. Follow can directions for the second coat. Remove the masking tape and paper shortly after the second coat--peel the paper and tape AWAY from the new paint at all points and don't let any of it get stuck in the new paint before it drys. If the second coat was applied fully wet overall without running, it should turn out very well. Good luck!

I have a 1993 buick lesabre custom that has flaking paint on the roof and trunk lid. Im not a body or paint man but I have started to sand down the areas with 400 grit and have applied some coats of...


Initial sanding can be done with 100 or it will take you a year to sand it down. You can either use a power sprayer and have paint mixed to match, or use cans made by duplicolor ...You will never match the existing paint though because it changes with age...I use the larger cans when available (marked for "vans") You can use 400 wet paper between coats and if you want to get crazy, use 800 wet when finished. Wait a few weeks and use white compound, clean well, in another couple of weeks, use clear-coat, sand again and when fully cured (few more weeks) then wax. Never sand unless paint has dried for at least 24 hours...even when it looks and feels dry, it can roll, and damage everything you have done.
