Default Re: Paint not hardening??

No worries

20min between coats is pushin' it even for (heavy) primer but is usually ok, with color coats and clears it usually takes longer... but so much depends on the temp and type of paint, even the thickness of coat. Still as you've noticed - you can get away w/murder when usin' rattlecans lol so it's w/e works.

If that "space heater" you have is a radiant electric it'll be good (2'+ rule again), but don't try with propane/kerosene or other fuel type heaters - not only is there a big fire hazard from fumes but the combustion can generate airborne particles and ruin a nice job... don't ask how I know o.o
