How long does it take FolkArt 3D Acrylic Paint to dry?

FolkArt 3D Acrylic Paint will form a skin over the dimensional paint surface and dry to the touch fairly quickly; however, variables such as project surface, humidity, and thickness of paint application will all impact the complete dry time. Do not place anything over the dimensional texture while drying, as doing so may reduce the dimension and texture.
