Humbrol gloss enamel
« on: June 28, 2012, 10:25:04 PM »

Hi all

I am currently repainting an ocean supply ship with Humbrol gloss enamels, I have waited overnight before recoating but after three days the paint still seems slightly soft although not tacky?  As anybody had the same lengthy drying times or should it be rock hard by now?

Thanks for any help...

If it has not gone off by now then simply wash it all off with white spirit and start again with fresh a fresh tin
