Depends on humidity and temp, most all paintwork I give final basecoat 45 min to an hour (about) to fully flash before clearing, temp/humidity and obviously how you apply it play a HUGE role on flash time
wait till its dry to the touch between coats and it'll come out alot wetter looking. thats the results you want right.?
btw using clear acryilic anamal lasts longer. but not as wet looking as clear lacquer. its just which ever lok your wanting
i used acrylic but thats me. I also used hardner to make it dry quicker between coats I usually put six coats clear
