Sorta like dipping a crisp piece of paper in water huh. Probably just needs more time to dry out again. For me, fast dry lacquer works well.
I'm curious... how do they sound now that it has had some time to get good and dry?
sounds like you coated them inside and out. once you seal a guitar it takes a lot of playing to open them up. transporting a guitar on an airplane can make it open up, so can a concrete vibrator. you can alo try a powerful speaker up close to the guitar and blast music on it for several weeks. or just play the hell out of them till they open up again.
