Type of paint for (wooden) lockbar

Recommended Posts

I made the lockbar out of a piece of MDF- rounded the edges and grooved it so it fits tight on my cabinet. The shape works well and I'm happy how it turned out. To finish it off I painted the lockbar in a clean black finish.

The paint I used is an acryllic lacquer, several coats- sanding between each coat of paint. However after a few weeks, my hand palms seem to "stick" more on the surface and the paint starts to show "crackle" where my hands touch the surface. 
Anyone have a similar experience? What paint is commonly used for this (should I use a type of varnish?)
