I spray painted my faux leather chair however after several days some parts are tacky and paint comes off? Any suggestion how to fix it.

  • The paint might not be compatible with the plastic of the chair. Check on the paint label to see if it is supposed to work with faux leather. It might never cure properly.

    The paint is still tacky because it has not been absorbed by the faux leather, which in other words, is vinyl.

    Go back to the label on the can. Did you use a recognized brand name spray paint, and does it say that it is recommended for use on vinyl? If so, then it has likely been sprayed on too thick, unevenly, has run, or has not been given enough time to thoroughly dry in between applications.

    This is why I do not recommend spray painting vinyl furniture.

    Take a roll of paper towel, wear rubber gloves, and start wiping off as much of the excess paint that is still tacky to touch. Allow the remainder to dry. See if you like how the finish looks then. If you think it is unattractive, I would then suggest either sewing or purchasing a slipcover.

    Spray paint on leather is tricky. Leather breathes, but paint doesn’t. If the room is very humid, or too chilly, if the coats of spray paint were two thick, or if the paint did not cure long enough, (from 1-5 days, usually before use), the paint will be tacky. If you bought spray paint for leather, and followed directions, then take the can back and get a refund. Give the sofa a few more days, and repaint, if you have faith in the product. Best wishes to you ☺️
