I think I may have messed up by being a little to anxious when I should have been patient. I'm working on a little pocket sling using an interesting method (which I'll show when it's done). I was finishing the wood with BLO, about 5 coats. This was to be followed with spray poly. Problem is, I'm on now my 3rd coat of spray poly and for some reason, the poly won't dry completely. I've used this poly numerous times before but I've not run into this problem, so I thought I'd throw the question out to the community. My first thought is that I didn't wait long enough for the BLO to really 'dry' before I started coating with the poly. It had been several hours since the last coat and the sling felt dry in my hand. Perhaps I didn't wait long enough? Also, it's been raining pretty heavily here the last 48 hours, which means really high humidity and lower temps. At this point it's too tacky to sand, it would just gum up the sandpaper. I decided to give it a third coat remembering that someone had said that poly can be a little 'blotchy' over oil finishes. But to have it remain tacky, after a full 24 hours of dry time?? So, experts in the field of catapultary and slingonometry, what say you? Did I "BLO" it?? And not wait long enough? Any suggestions on how I can fix this? Should I just keep applying more poly and hope the problem goes away? Let it sit another day or two? What would you do?
