Coat drying

3 posts in this topic

Is it ok if i try to speed the drying process and dry the coat (or all of them succesively : the primer, the paint and the final coating) with a hair dryer? what are the effects of such an action?

thanks, Radu

Radu,

Be very very careful with that. In my experience, forcing the drying process usually ends up in paint blistering, peeling or some other problem.

Patience is a virtue and a necessary part of finishing your baits. Others may have had luck doing it but not me.

I paint with acrylics and am in a cold region banished to the garage. Because of this paint drying can be extremely slow. I wouldn't use a hair dryer as I have tried this and the paint will blister. What I do is use my lure drying wheel about two feet from a small electric floor heater. This way the lure only passes by the heat briefely then cools on the other side of the wheel. I have never had any blistering problem doing it this way.
