    Default Ratios

    I was using a Shopline hardener that called for a 8-1-1 ratio, I ran out and went to a local paint place and got a can of Master Pro Wet Look Hardener it called for a ratio of 8-1 but I mixed it 8-1-1, the paint looks great but my question is will it set up properly? It has been 1.5 hours since I painted and it is still pretty tacky. I am at 82% humidity and 72 degrees right now.

    I am going to answer my own question now as it has been almost 5 hours since I painted the pieces and the paint is starting to cure.

    A lot of the lower cost brands of paint already have reducer mixed into the color and that's why no additional reducer is needed. However adding reducer to those lower cost products usually doesn't harm the finish.
