Every time it’s time to repaint a room or our house, I always opt for an oil-based paint. There are many reasons for this. For one, the paint’s result is smoother, and it covers the surface more thoroughly. It is also less prone to shrinkage and hold up well even when frequently touched or disturbed. Lastly, it takes longer to dry. I regard it as an advantage as it gives me more time to finish my work perfectly. However, the amount of time it takes for oil paint to dry can also be a disadvantage. So how long does oil paint take to dry?
