Krylon Spray Varnish over Soy based paint

lostinitApril 11, 2012

Soy paint then krylon varnish, varnish is still tacky. What is going on?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'm not familiar with soy paint, but the problem with putting varnish over paint is:

a) the paint may not be done curing yet (latex takes a month, I don't know how long soy paint takes)

b) the paint and varnish may not be compatible

I once bought a mirror at a garage sale with a pretty faux metal finish. However, the finish was always tacky. The entire year I owned it, my hair would stick if I got too close. I suspect it was a similar top-coat compatibility issue (which explains why I got such a huge mirror for such a cheap price).
