you will have better luck waiting longer as the solvents that come out will cause a condition called die back. This is where the clear loses some depth. This is most critical on dark colors.

30 minutes is the MINIMUM!!!!!
(under IDEAL conditions)
24 hrs is the maximum.

You don't want to get close to either one of those.
I wait an hour usually.

I usually base at night, go to bed, get up, shower and spray clear in the AM. It minimizes the chance of dieback and I'm fresh so I pay more attention to how the clear is laying.

Stick with the spec sheet that DuPont put out for Chroma paints - which is 30 minutes to 24 hours (15 minutes is too short a time). It works well that way.

If you haven't used DuPont paints, be advised that some colors will take more then the 2-3 medium coats and that is noted in their paint charts by a number. Your supplier can give you that info - assuming he even knows

Here's the DuPont Chroma Tech Manual: http://pc.dupont.com/dpc/en/US/html/...romaBaseBC.pdf (their web site is a PITA to navigate)

I hope your reduction is 100% because if you are reducing it 50% you are going to have some lumpy paint! It is a 1:1 ratio = 100% reduction.
