Gray Exterior Paint Turning Pink

I painted the outside of my house a few weeks ago with Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint in Dorian Gray. Today I noticed that some areas have a pinkish look to them. Anyone ever experience this? I was think of doing another coat, but I don't want to waste my time if it's just going to turn pink again.

What prep was done prior to painting? Have you inquired at your local SWP store about the problem?

I don't have time now but I'll try to look up that color later and see if there is anything in the color that could cause it. I've used a lot of SuperPaint and have always found it to be a quality coating.

Have to ask - what color was the house before you put the grey paint on it?

The house was white and was power washed prior to painting.

Well, that means it's not the pink you tried to cover up coming through

Can you post a couple pictures?

Had another thought, what was the air temperature when you applied the paint and the overnight low?

I got home too late tonight to take pics, but I'll get some tomorrow.

I stopped into SW today, though, and the kid there said he'd never heard of that happening - although he didn't seem too knowledgable.

The temp outside was around 85 with it being no colder than 70 at night.

Surfactant leaching is still a possibility although it's more common in cool drying temps. Do you think the dew could have settled on that section of paint before it had time to dry real good? Look forward to seeing the pics.
