Response from Rust-OleumSupportMay 18, 2021
Something is amiss here, Patty! Make sure that the surface is completely dry before applying the Rust-Oleum Varathane Paste Finishing Wax. You may need to allow more time at cooler temperatures. A thicker coating application can extend the dry time as well. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum
