Hey All, I have been at this since Nov 2011 and have been using a garage with ambient temp of 50ish-however,when the temps hit 70-80's notice the paint dries immediately after spraying on poster board & no amount of clear helps. Any suggestions as to avoid this if possible? Someone suggested put cans in cool water and let them sit might try it but wanted to see how others contend with this dilemma. Thanks in advance

You could try painting in the shade, that seems to help a little. I've never tried putting my cans in cool water... but it sounds like it might work.
I try to save my silhouette paintings for days like that. That way i can get the black, or whatever color I use,
to dry quickly and it's ready to make stencil paintings. And I don't just do one, I make a whole bunch so that I can do a stencil painting when I need to.
Good luck with the weather. :)
