Paint that remains tacky days after application will dash your dreams of a beautiful painted surface. A phenomenon known as blocking keeps paint from drying to a smooth finish. Blocking affects items painted with latex paint when the surrounding air is too cold, too hot or has too much humidity. If you did not wait enough time between coats or use a poor quality latex paint, tackiness might occur.

Latex Paints Sometimes Stay Tacky
A coat of primer is recommended for almost all painting projects, whether it's new drywall, old wood, bare metal, previously painted brick, or any other surface. Primer is essentially sticky, flat paint that is designed to adhere well and to provide a consistent base for topcoats of paint. If you paint a surface without priming it first, you will likely need more coats for adequate coverage, and the paint may not stick as well to the original surface as it would to the primer.
