Other (inherent) Paint Deficiences
TackyTacky paint is visually often glossy and saturated as it has not yet fully dried. Over time it often attracts dirt which becomes imbibed in the upper layer of the paint which can then change the appearance to dulled-down, matte colour. It is slightly adhesive or gummy to the touch, sticky.
