Sticky primer on cabinets

I primed my cabinet doors with an oil based primer for glossy surfaces (made for cainets) after cleaning with TSP (as directed). After waiting 24hrs, the doors are dry, but sticky to the touch. Is this normal? How long should I wait before painting?

Since you cleaned the cabinets I assume there was nothing on the surface to affect the paint. High humidity will slow down the drying process. You need to wait until the primer is dry enough to sand before applying the next coat.

I used BM waterbased all-purpose primer on some shelves about a week ago. They took four days to cure--rain and humidity were not a good combination. Patience will pay off in the end--if you paint now, the final coat may never cure correctly. I know this from prior rush jobs
