High heat could have caused it. I have had one cavern set go through my hands once that was genuine and had water effects that were rough/pebbly and I assumed it was due to heat. It was not sticky or at all soft, though so your description isn't 100% in line with what I saw.
That sounds like gas from the resin added to wet paint. The water effects products can do the same thing. That is why I was asking about bubbles.

Hey guys, this all awesome feedback. The set did come in the molded styrofoam (no box) so I think it is genuine? I’ll do some more investigation. When I get home I’ll try out the cue-tip idea. Just water for the solvent, or something like a 50% vinegar? It is interesting because every single pool on every piece is this way. At first I was thinking high heat, but seemed odd that it would cause this. Here’s hoping that is just something covering the pools. (But why would anyone do that?)
May be they thought it would look better.

I can not tell if there are gas bubbles. Old eyes. Let us know.

I have 2 passage sets, and the water effects are all hard-ish, no tackiness. That said I have cleaned them with a white vinegar-water solution (similar to what I'd clean my hardwood floors with) using a small cloth applicator in the past, and I've done this simply because of use, and the water effects seem to need a bit of cleaning .... None of them are soft however.

I have several sets, I've never seen this issue.

Or a Q-tip if you want to be extra careful. Scrub one of the pools with water first, then move to vinegar if that doesn't work, etc. The puddle should be smooth, and you don't want to scratch the resin.

It looks to me like something has been put on top of the clear resin. The clear resin is a hard resin, not soft.
I did not mention that water could harm the felt paper. It would not be a good idea to immerse the tile. Use a spray bottle.
