I've recently used Sculpt or Coat to coat and protect my foam tombstones. Even after a week, it's still somewhat tacky and sticks to things. Any suggestions on what to do about this so it won't stick to other objects?

I've also used it to coat a bunch of skulls I'm using in my skull fountain - is this stuff waterproof?

I'm wondering if the high heat and high humidity is affecting them because today it cooled off a bit and they seem less tacky. I'll give it more time and see what happens.

But how about the waterproofing? Does Sculpt or Coat waterproof props?...say for fountain usage?

hawks, how thick did you apply it to your stones? SOC can be used to apply texture, and that would increase the drying time. It just sounds weird that you are reporting it as being sticky, though. It is supposed to be a great water barrier, but I don't know how well it would hold up in a constant flow of water like in a fountain.
If you haven't already, put it under a fan for a while and see if that helps.

Thanks, Dave I'll try the fan idea. I didn't think I put it on too thick - it was slightly white in color but still transparent enough to see what's under it. I did however apply a 2nd coat a couple days later...maybe this is my problem????

For the waterproofing issue - I'm gonna try coating the skulls in acrylic enamel. I found some that's safe for projects using materials like foam and it promotes interior/exterior use. Anyone try this stuff?
