What's the deal with humidity and spray painting?
So, I just sprayed a couple rockets. One with yellow lacquer (Lustrekote) and one with Rustoleum crystal clear enamel.
Both sprayed fine and looked glossy initially but when I went back out to check on them both had turned matte almost chalky; both had a whitish cast to them. The enamel situation was the worst because it was over black paint so stands out. But basically the same situation on both rockets.
Both cans have been previously used with great results.
I'm presuming it's due to the humidity; it's ~70 degrees now and 80%+ humidity. OK, I'm an idiot for painting in high humidity and I'm regretting rushing things.
But, what is it about the high humidity that makes paint that initially appears to go on fine and lay down nicely suddenly go all frosty on me?
And, will a coat of Future cure it?
If you stare into the abyss long enough, soon you will find it staring back out at you.
