Help! We power-washed, primed and painted (2 coats) our stucco home. Acrylic prime and paint. Home is adobe style with rounded edges. Day after 2nd coat of paint, nice warm day, brown dripping markings all over. It is sticky too. They want to re-power wash and paint. I need answers and opinions please.

Don't panic! The likely suspect is leached sufacants (soap like substances that exist in latex paints). Paint damp cement (stucco) under low temperature and higher humidity conditions and the brown sticky goo is likely to appear. "Normal weathering", washing and/or repainting will solve the problem.
