How long should cedar dry after a rain before painting?
depending on the climate where you live, you may want to wait till spring rather than chance damp wood and cold temperature it's a good idea to wait days following a day of rain check the wood in a number of places with a moisture meter should be around 15 or so in order to paint safely.

Read the can is the best thing to do, alkyd paint takes longer, some latex are very short, 20 minutes to recoat, most are 2 - 4 hours.
Answer . The "paint" inside of a paintball isn't really paint, it is primarily polyethylene glycol which is water soluble and also found in food. They also contain dye. The "paint" doesn't exactly dry like normal paint, it evaporates and breaks down and leaves behind just the dye or a dry paste l…ike residue depending on the paint's fill thickness. . (MORE)
It can take up to 20 mins. But for perfect results, after drying, dip in cold water for 1 min to "set" the paint.
It's almost impossible to answer this because depends on the type of paint, the temperature, the humidity, and the ventilation. . At 70 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity of less than 50%, alkyd paints generally cure completely in 3 days or so. Latex paints under the same conditions will ap…pear to dry faster but will not completely cure and stop releasing solvent into the air for up to 30 days. . Likewise, how soon you can safely sleep in the room depends partly on your tolerance for the solvents in the particular paint you've chosen. Some paints are specially formulated with low or zero VOC (volatile organic content) and are essentially safe even while still wet. .

Wait at the very minimum 4 hours for the paint to be completely surface dry. Then to be to be sure not to damage the new paint work wait for 24 hours if you can.. Lots of factors to consider. The humidity is a big factor, as well as temperature. You need to have good ventilation. If you have the he…at or a/c on, it will dry faster. If you can shower without water hitting the paint, you should be good at 24 hours, whether it is oil or latex. And don't brush against it when the humidity is high. After a couple days there shouldn't be any problems with the paint unless you are in a very tropical area. (MORE)
There are so many factors that go into the curing of concrete. Ambient temp, ground temperature, wind, rain, sun and many more. A good rule of thumb is wait a month. Around the month time frame place a square piece of plastic sheeting (say 6X6 inch piece). Tape all 4 sides with duct tape. After a da…y or so if you see condensation under the plastic the concrete is still too wet to paint. Keep checking until it the plastic is dry. (MORE)
It takes about a year to fully set but it is dry enough to be painted over after a day or two.
between 24-48 hours depending on 1, the quality of the gloss, and 2, how thick you apply it. . Have fun! Its a crap job!!!
A long dry period caused by the absence of rain is called adrought. Droughts are very bad for supporting life for plants andanimals.
It would not be necessary, but preferable because additional work would be created at the openings for doors and windows because of the additional thickness being addes.
\nPrimer should be allowed to dry for 48 hours. Some manufacturers may have a shorter drying time, usually this is noted on the container.
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.
I don't think the park in general closes, but I know the rollercoasters do close because the breaks won't work with the rain.
In a dry climate 24 hours is usually enough time to allow the substrate to dry before application. Allow a longer drying time in humid areas.
Patting meat dry is done to ensure a fast, even sear in the pan. Not all meats need to be patted dry - ground meats and smoked or precooked meats (ham, bacon, kielbasa, sausage, etc) should not be dried.
the paint will not dry without being open to the air, so the question is how long will the shell be good and that depends on which paint you have, could be hours could be weeks
About two days depending on the depth of the base coat and finish coat. Also is the this going on brick or masonry that is exposed to the outside? or lath with an air path behind it? It may take longer to dry if it's going on masonry that is an outside wall and if the outside wall is wet. Also d…epends on the air circulation in the home. (MORE)
It does depend on the thickness of the paint. If the paint has agood amount of paint on it it will take about half an hour. Anormal amount will take about 15 mins.
Checking with my paint supplier, I was told you have to wait at least 48 hours for oil base paint to dry before covering with latex. Probably, the longer the better.
With oil base you have to wait until it is dry. Latex paint can be put on while it is still wet, some people even wet and area before painting to reduce the amount of paint that gets adsorbed in the the area.
It depends a bit on the thickness. Thin layers dry very quickly (within an hour, very thick ones maybe need one or two days. ) This is great for layering techniques. But if you want to work wet-in-wet, you need slow drying paint. You can use a retarder for acrylics, just add it to your paint and …it will dry slower. (MORE)
Anywhere from 4 to 24 hours depending on what the surface is and the ambient conditions.
Generally, if painting on the outside wait a least 48 hours for the surface to be free of any moisture.
Normally it would take 1 hour, but a flood, could take a few days. If it carries on raining, bad luck, but if its sunny, it shouldn't take long, the time would fly by.
It takes the same amount of time as any other rattle can paint. 24-48 hours untill it's fully cured. In at least one other case, it may take over a week.

at least 21 days, but if you live in a wet or cold climate, you should allow 30. this time is nessecary of the motar to fully cure so that moisture problems dont result later
7 days Whiteboard paint takes 7 days to cure. Don't be fooled if it seems dry to the touch sooner than that. It can feel try to the touch within 24 hours, but it won't be ready for use until it has fully cured - so be patient, and give it the full week. Otherwise you could have quite a mess on you…r wall!

About 30 minutes but it takes at least 2 hours before they are fully dry.
This depends on: . brand of paint . Additives used in the paint to prevent this . Type of paint used . Quality and type of prep work . Waxing and maintenance done to prevent this The old Lacquer paint used to Oxidize starting immediately and noticeably. We used to wax as soon as the paint set… up to prevent this. Generally damage from this process is slower for all current paints. (MORE)
If it's a latex base white paint or a primer of any kind, it will dry within an hour. Cure fully in about 8 hours. Oil based paint will take about 2-3 hours to dry to the touch, 24 hours to fully cure.
No. In fact, it may even wash away if the rain is strong enough. Best to recoat once the rain stops.
When I prepare egg noodles we always leave them out to dry. Depending on the time of the year and where you live (if it's humid or dry) it could take and hour or so or all day. Normally if you make them in the early morning they'll be dry to make dinner, if not you can always blow dry them with a ha…ir dryer. (MORE)
Putty should not be allowed to dry completely. If it does, then it will become brittle and may shrink and crack. The main purpose of putty is to form a seal between the glass and the wooden window frame. The putty should be painted to seal in the linseed oil which keeps it pliable. A film of hard pu…tty on the surface forms after 2 to 3 weeks (weather dependent) and then the painting should be carried out to stop any further drying of the putty. (MORE)
Use a primer anytime you are going over a bare surface, a stained surface, a surface that is hard to adhere to like plastic, glass or ceramic or when using a dark paint that needs several coats to cover like a red or yellow.
It depends. If it's an oil based enamel, it will take anywhere from an hour, for a super-fast dry enamel which is intended to be sprayed, to 24 hours for a standard coating. A water based enamel with usually dry to the point of being serviceable anywhere from an hour to six hours. This is assuming t…hat the paint was applied at a moderate temperature and with a low relative humidity. Both types of enamels should not be scrubbed for at least two weeks to allow time for the surfaces to fully cure. As always, it's best to check the paint's label or technical data sheet for information specific to that coating. (MORE)
Wait until the surface is fully dry and the humidity level is less than 85%. The dew point should not be within 5 degrees of the temperature. A good rule of thumb is don't paint oil based paints if it might rain within four hours after you've finished applying the paint.
The answer to you question lies in the reason we paint our houses today: to protect them from the elements. Hence, fast drying time. If your home has been previously painted it will dry quickly after the rain or a wash. The eaves protect most of the upper reaches of the walls so the areas nearest th…e ground will remain wet longer. A good indication I often go by is if the dirt that splashes up onto the lower surfaces of the walls during a rain is dry enough to wipe right off...then you're good to go. (MORE)
You should not apply stain after paint . They are two different things and there is no point doing this. Stain is for bare prepared wood, not for going over paint.
If you stain with a breathable stain such as from SANSIN Corporation, you may coat anytime. If you're sealing it, you should wait until the moisture content is at least 12%. I can't tell you how long to wait because that depends on the humidity, temperature, how long it has already been cut etc.
I sandpaper it only if its a very glossy, oil based surface. With that exception,I don't think sanding is necessary.
It depends on which biome you live in, and what material your sidewalk is made of: I live in rural north England, deciduous forest, the sidewalks are made of mud and after it rains it takes about half an hour in the sun to dry.
Acrylic house paint takes very little time to dry, usually 30 minutes to the touch and is able to be recoated within four hours. However, acrylic paint is slow to fully cure, often taking up to a month to fully cure.
Depending on the hardness of the masonry and in what manner it was smoothed, also if it is placed on the ground and grouted in between masonry tiles. If it is rough, it can still absorb a small amount of moisture and finely smoothed may repel it more. If it is grouted between tiles, then the undersi…des may be moist for a long time as well as the high amount of certain grout moisture absorption, but if it is for the purpose of coating the masonry, then only the upper sides are important. It would also depend on if the masonry is drying on the days after the rain where the sun did not come out fully from beyond the clouds. If it was in the sun and the days are warm, then about 2 hours after the last amount of moisture appears to have evaporated, give it 3 to make sure. If it dried while it was cloudy during the colder weather, then it may take a day or two, providing that there has been no more rain. (MORE)
Satin paint usually takes about 2-4 hours to dry, but if you are recoating, then it will take 8 hours.
In order for the lotion to take effect, you must apply it after drying off. If you do so before drying off the lotion may come off with the towel you use.
Generally a base that has more pigment dries longer. Latex is fastest regardless of colour.
First of all, concrete does not "dry" to become hard. It cures,which is a chemical interaction between its water and its portlandcement. Usually, a couple of hours is plenty of time for concrete to 'set'enough to not be damaged by rain. The best and strongest concrete never dries out for the first… 28days from pouring it. (MORE)
Wait at least 5 days to wash a fresh painted wall. It takes 3 daysfor it too fully dry.
How long does it take for paint toxins to COMPLETELY dissapear after painting a bedroom and how ling should you wait before sleeping in it?
One should open the windows and air out a bedroom for 24-48 hoursafter painting to get rid of all of the toxins.
It reduces the chance of rusting of the blade. A very light coating of machine oil on the blade also helps preventrusting.
