speed drying oil paint is more dependent on external factors, the ambient temperature, humidity, light intensity, as well as its formulation.The paint hardens not due to evaporation of moisture from it (and there it is not), but because of the oxidation of the oil film.Therefore, to accelerate the drying oil paint, it is necessary to speed up the process of interaction between the paint with oxygen.
to accelerate the formation of an oil-resistant film, apply paint roller or brush on the prepared surface with a thin layer.Paint dries approximately 24 hours.If necessary, neprokrase or uneven surfaces, repeat the procedure.
Accelerate the oxidative processes in the oil paint film can heat it.For example, many young artists dried his paintings at the battery o
f central heating.But this is a special case.Just put in a room where there are just painted with oil paint surface of the heater or heater.By the way, heating oil paint increases its durability and resistance to alkalis, to put it simply, the soap.The only caveat - do not leave the heating device unattended to avoid a fire broke out.
There are chemical ways to speed drying oil paints.This addition to the paint so-called driers - drying accelerators.Add them to a small amount (in accordance with the instructions on the package) into the paint and mix thoroughly.Driers allow to dry painted surfaces much faster and do not affect the quality of the oil paint.Generally, as the experts advise before you buy oil paint , read everything that is written on the package.Good oil-based paint contains at least 10 components.
