Newbie here with a question

Post by BiznessMan » Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:30 pm

Sorry if this has been answered already. I looked around but couldn't find an answer.
This past Friday I painted my Gameboy color with Krylon Fusion red. For the most part it looks really good, but even after a few days it still feels a bit sticky. The paint isn't coming off or anything, but my fingers do seem to stick to it a little.

Just wondering if there is anything I can do to make it feel more like plastic. I am considering sanding it down just a small bit but I'm obviously very new to all of this :(

Leave it somewhere warm and dry to cure. If you have an oven that you can set to about 90F, that would be incredible.

Let it cure there for about two days.

When I painted the controller for this, I used Krylon clearcoat over the Fusion paint. No tacky feeling, and the paint is protected.
