How long do you have to wait for latex primer to dry?
Latex Primer dries fairly quickly. It will depend on the humidity levels in the home and the surface its applied to. On new drywall which the surface is more porous and will absorb more primer vs previously painted. Usually you can apply a top coat in 2 - 4 hours. Rick The Renovator

You must consider 3 things, ( temperature--Humidity--and Air flow), For drying Gesso fast; Temp. above 70 degrees, Humidity below 70%, direct air flow toward canvas. you can e…xperiment with speeding up drying time or slow down drying time altering these 3 things. Good-Luck
You must use a lot of water, soap, and scrub hard.
yes you can i dont worry about what type of paint is on walls as long as it is dry it dont matter
You should wait at least 15 minutes before using your hands to do other things (eat, talk on the phone, reach into your purse, etc.) But give it a full hour for the polish to …be totally set and not smudge. Many nail salons have drying stations and quick drying spray.
you only use primer over bare wood or stains. If you have really tough stains you might need to use shellac based primer, otherwise any stain covering primer.
Generally, if painting on the outside wait a least 48 hours for the surface to be free of any moisture.
No. It will alter the colour and properties of the paint - but you can buy premixed paint and primer at the store that is designed to work together.
Yes it will.
One full week to avoid chips and peels
In most cases yes. Primer is applied according to what it is going on, not what is going over it. - Latex / acrylic / water-based primers are good over drywall, stucco, b…rick, patches and repairs made with polyfil or other drywall patching compounds, paper, and many other porous materials. Once the primer is applied and dry any type of paint may be painted over it.
No. If you do, you'll make a waste product that is hard to get rid of.
water. Little bits at a time, stir, then add a little more until desired consistency.
Because it's soaking in to dry unused surfaces.
Epoxy primer has to go over a bare surface otherwise it can act as a stripper, causing the base coat, along with the newly applied epoxy to delaminate or lift from the surface….
You should at least wait about 2-3 weeks. You don't have to wait that long to paint over an oil-based primer. Check the label of the oil-based primer to determine recoat time…s. Depending on the type of primer, it could specify anywhere from one to 48 hours dry time before recoat.
For as long as it takes for the surface to be completely dry.
