How to dry paint faster
When you needed it yesterday, use a hairdryer or LESS water.
I have tested this with watercolor and acrylic mediums on both paper and wood panel. If you don’t want your paint to dry to fast in fear of cracks especially in acrylic (although this has never happened to me), use a cooler setting on the blower. The chances of it cracking are rare.
With watercolor using this technique can prevent bleed lines in solid blocks of color. This will eliminate or reduce the chance of veins appearing in your sky or smooth complexion. Using less waterlogged brushes will aid the process along to.
You’ll find in mere seconds you can add that second coat of pretty pink paint.
