    How long do you let your base coat dry?

    Just curious to see how long everyone waits until the base coat is dry before adding details......
    Thanks

    For me it depends on the colors I'm using. If I'm putting red or black on any color, several hours maybe overnight. Pastels, couple of houts.

    Depends if you are using glaze or RI glaze, or RI, I use RI glaze and just let them dry an hour or so and continue to decorate. When I did glaze only I would let them dry overnight.

    Using my RI/glaze mix, I sometimes add after 5 minutes. As for straight-up glaze, at least 1/2 hour, maybe more.

    Usually I'm doing at least 3 dozen cookies and by the time I've flooded and outline those I can start to think about doing some detail work. I'd say with my fan going an hour is plenty of time.
