I have recently made an Octagonal Barrel and have painted it with Krylon Fusion spray paint. I wanted to lube it, but I tested CRC Silicone Spray on one piece and paint started to wash off :cry: . I was wondering what I should do, because the puzzle turns horrible. Any ideas? :?

Don't paint the insides of the puzzles. Only paint the surfaces that need painting, and tape off the rest.

Use vaseline. It works well temprorarily, though you have to relube it every once in a while.
