I have repainted some kitchen chairs for Christmas, and they are not drying! I am using an “Alkyd enamel” paint, purchased at a paint store. Obviously, I can’t have guests sitting in wet chairs, so I’m starting to get a bit panicky.
As I recall, when I did a refresh coat a few years ago, they took a few days to dry – leaving them in direct sunlight seemed to help. Being winter, I don’t have that option.
My humidity is low, too.
Is there any way to get this type of paint to dry faster? The can states it should be fully dry in 24 hours, but it’s been 48 hours and still quite tacky!
Can anyone recommend some course of action?!
