Is there an amount of time to allow createx paint to fully cure before it should be topcoated with envirotex? I know the paint is dry to the touch after 30 mins or less but is it safe to topcoat or should I wait a couple of days? Does anyone have experience on putting 2 coats of envirotex on baits. How long do you allow between coats? Do you let the first coat cure fully before you put the second coat on? Do you put the second coat on the next day? Envirotex directions say to allow 72 hours to fully cure (depending on temperature). Anybody have opinions or experiences that they would like to share?

Createx, heatset with a blow dryer... etex.... 12 hours is sufficient between coats. I apply up to 4 coats of etex per bait.
