How Long Does it Take for Angelus Leather Paint to Dry?

A layer of paint takes between 15-30 minutes to dry. To ensure that the finish is fully dried, it’s best to wait for 24 hours.

I just made a wallet that I painted with several coats of Angelus. Drying time will depend on coat thickness and your environment. Never lay it on thick. I work in an air-conditioned environment that dehumidifies the Mid-Atlantic air very efficiently. So I apply the next coat in about 15 minutes. By the way, I usually apply antique stain to enhance the lines the next day.

It’s great having context for different regions. Humidity and temperature play such key roles in paint and sealent dry times. With simple projects it’s sort of give it a touch. With finer projects, taking the time to reflect on environment can help make noticeably better results. Great note to mention
