Valspar Satin Problem

Susan asked 6 years ago

I have never had this problem with Benjamin Moore, but I am having this with Valspar satin and I am wondering what I am doing wrong. After I roll on the paint it is like I will come back in a minute or two and it will look almost as if it is melting…and in some areas it will actually drip a bit. I might have to go back several times. It even happened in a few areas where I cut in, several minutes after edging, not while I am doing it. It is like I have to go over it and then come back to make sure it hasn’t done it again. I asked the guy at Lowes and he checked my roller size and said it should be fine and that I should try using less. When I use less, then I have uncovered areas, have to do another area, wait till it “melts” and then come back. Is this normal? I’m ready to tear my hair out. Luckily it is just a kids room but it is much more convenient for me to use Lowes and the price is better too. At this rate though it isn’t worth it. Thanks for any suggestions.
