Krylon. Same as the base rock color paints.

I'm wondering if brush-painting the shiny rock with a water-based acrylic flat would give you the desired level of flatness?

Perhaps, but blending it in where the vegetation encroaches on the rock would be a PITA.

Off topic: KF Industries, Inc, makers of power packs, back in the day, was located at 230 West Dauphin Street in Philadelphia.

Yup, the slope front ones were the same as the KF model UL 25 of which I have two.

I'm happy to see photos of DKS holding things again!

Here's a Clerihew about Ed. K.

Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
But mention his law
and you've pulled your last straw!

Alternate version:
Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
He asks excitedly "Did you say Ménage à Trois?"
No, I said "Ed's Law."

So it wasn't one of these props?

It's a day after the close of the challenge, and the rocks are now super-ultra-shiny--if I'd intended for them to look so freakishly wet at the outset, I'd never expect to be so successful. Now I'm going to re-paint all of the rockwork so it doesn't look seriously effing dripping wet. I mean... it's almost frightening how wet they look right now...

Sounds like the chemical reaction between the rubber rock and the clear coat continues?  Is the surface dry to the touch, or is it sticky?

It's a bit sticky, so it would seem the reaction isn't quite done. Crap.

While I don't want to be a Peetie-downer, it might take months or years for the stickiness go away, or it might never solidify or dry.  But maybe coating the surface with water-based acrylic matte clear will seal the sticky surface?

This reminds me of what happens when using white Testors PLA enamel to do the lettering on certain vinyl tires for 1:24 scale model cars.  That paint applied to the vinyl surface remains tacky for years (forever?).

That's three for three between you and me today.  This one, another in the DC forum, and the Baconrail thread. Fun, isn't it?  :)

It was a misty morning along the banks of the Susquehanna and the rocks haven't dried off, yet.
