Question Testors dullcoat and drying time

Simple question that I can't seem to find an answer to.

I am airbrushing acrylic paint on a Batman statue and want to use Testors dullcoat to "lock in" my progress at various staged like so many suggest.

Once I have airbrushed some acrylic, how soon can I add the Testors?

Once I have added the Testors, how soon can I add more acrylic?

Guess that's two questions, thanks in advance.

What paints do you use?

All my paints dry almost in an instant so I can always spray flat lacquer whenever I want to.
I don't use Testors as I've found it can eat through some paints, I prefer Mr Super Clear instead.
Drying time is a few seconds with a blow dryer. After that I can start painting again

Yup you can paint and then use testors, then paint over again etc. Nothing will happen. I always paint skin tones first, then seal with testors or even car paint from can and then paint over that.

Testors dries pretty fast like in minutes so your fine.

just if you spray from the can of testors and it splatters out let that splatter dry don't try to wipe it off, sometimes those nozzles can get clogged and be crappy so you need to just be careful is all.

And Vince, love your YouTube Vids!
