    I used Quick Dry on several large oil paintings over a month ago and the overall surface is still very sticky. This product does not work.

    Okay So Im a Heavy procrastinator sometimes so when I need to travel with a painting or need to get it done and dry ASAP this has seriously been a god send.... However.... is there anyway to avoid the Tackiness thats left when its dry? the paintings seem totally dry after a couple days but they still feel sticky. Nothing lifts up but dust sticks to the surface like nobodies business. Help?show less
    I would recommend to a friend.

    Krylon still has has a bit of development work to do on this product.
    The solvents in this product are really toxic. Can’t see it being part of my kit.

    much of what this product does is handled nicely by Liquin.


  • I use water soluble (miscible) oils and they dry pretty quick.  I mean after one day they are fairly dry to the touch.  If I ass a lot of linseed oil it might be two days tops.
  • You can avoid and resolve this problem by switching products.  Use Gamvar, a product of Gamblin, the paint manufacturer.  You can apply it as soon as your paint is touch dry.  I wait a few extra days.  The only thing to avoid is applying it thickly.  One well applied thin coat will do, but sometimes, after drying a day or so, I apply a second thin coat.
  • @broker12, Have you used Gamvar on work that was painted using the Slow Dry Medium ?
