put two coats of exterior paint on front doors. how long+

purrusAugust 19, 2012

to wait for third coat? It feels dry and I'd love to get thsi project done today, but not at the expense of the quality of the result. Thoughts from the experts around here?

It's red paint, btw... covering glossy black. So I will probably need two more coats!

Read the can for recoat times, but generally this depends on drying conditions. If it feels dry with zero tackiness then generally it is ready for recoat.
