Default center consoler paint

i need some help, i just installed a center console from a ford explorer and painted the armrest with a krylon outdoor/indoor paint and the result is a disasters, after i painted it, my brother knocked off the hand rest and it lay flat on the ground, and i picked it up and all the dirt got stuck on the surface, and i touch the remainder part and its so sticky,i tried to clean it off with a rug but to no avail.

my question is what kind of paint or brand that you guys use to paint vinyl that is not sticky and from where you bought it, and second, any suggestions you guys could give me to remove the paint that i put because it so sticky and a big magnet of finger prints hoping you guys could help me thank you!

i did the same with my side armrest on my door, to be honest that kind of rubbery/plasticy stuff is just not meant to be spray painted. As far as my situation, I am going to get a hard plastic armrest from a newer Ranger to replace my old one. However, for your case... idk, it never hurts to put a crapload of primer or a little bondo on it to change the situation.

Good luck.

What about getting some vinyl or fabric of your choice and rewrapping it??

Did you use vinyl paint? They have it, and I've used it on the dashpad of my 66 Mustang. Looked pretty good.
