Painted & Sealed Terra Cotta pots not drying

Ok, so I painted some terra Cotta pots(picture), used some acrylic clearcoat, and then used thompson's water seal on top. It's been 2+ days of 70+ daytime temp/60+ nighttime temp and they are still tacky to the touch. I heard Thompson's water Seal worked pretty well for terra cotta, but then I checked online and I'm getting mixed reveiws. Can anyone who knows about painting Terra Cotta help? Thankyou!

Maybe the problem is the paint or the clearcoat you put on first. The Thompsons isn't going on terra cotta, it's going on what you put on the terra cotta.
