A model is presented for the diffusion-driven drying of a polymeric solution such as liquid paint. Included is a stress build-up and relaxation in the polymer network of the viscoelastic material, which influences the diffusion process. The behaviour of the (one-dimensional) model is analysed by means of the maximum principle and illustrated with numerical calculations.
