So I have the day off today, which means I was able to stay up nice and late last night painting. I got one of the little Partha goblins I've been working on around midnight, and then went to bed. Couldn't get my sorry buttocks up until about nine thirty this morning, went and made coffee, had some toast and then wanted to put finish on my little goblin so later today I could work on his base and finally call him done. So I used the Reaper brush on finish, mixing it with water, and as I was applying the finish, I noticed that I was literally wiping way the paint on the edges of the straps and on the arrow case (he's an archer). I thought this was kind of odd because I'd waited really about ten hours before I put the finish on. I normally wait a full day but wanted to take advantage with being on vacation today. I've put finish on miniatures before in less time than this and nothing has ever remotely happened like this. Has this ever happened to anybody else, or would this have been a freakishly exceptional case? So ending out the story, I touched up on the little guy which took about an hour, which cut highly into my joyful morning paint time, as I hate doing things over, but oh well....
So all, I just finished something this morning, the combination of middle age and wanting to get things done before people start waking up and make me do other random fun things (like take down the Christmas decorations) and I want to seal it. I normally wait for a day for whatever reason, but I'd like to get this figure finished and move on. Is there a recommended minimum drying time for paint before you throw varnish on it?
