    I have been building a cabin in my garden and the interior is OSB board in the kitchen and hardwood plywood in the bathroom. (Wetwall around the shower area)
    I have painted Zeroflame Fire retardant paint on to both surfaces. (OSB & Plywood) You can over paint this fire retardant paint but it has to be with a water based paint. So I painted Valspar kitchen and bathroom soft sheen in both the kitchen and bathroom.
    It's been about 2 months since I painted both areas and the paint feels tacky. It's horrible
    What I have done wrong?
    And how to do I sort it?
    Will it dry/get less tacky over time?
    All that I have done was recommended to me by a painter friend. :(

    Any advice would be really appreciated, thank you in advance!

    Just had a quick look at the tech spec and it does say that it is not suitable for OSB as OSB is not absorbent enough. I know that doesn't help but that's all I can offer at the moment. Sure a pro painter will be along today sometime.
