Waterbourne enamel?


If I paint raw pine planks (#2 grade) with SW ProClassic and BM Impervo) how long will it take to dry before I can use it for bookshelves and not have the problem of the books sticking?

Should I use a primer first and, if so which primer?

Thanks!

Oil based primer first and at least a couple days to dry hard. The finish paint will take a month to fully cure but I have put books back on them after a couplr days with no problem.

Thanks for the response. Would you use a good acrylic paint? Satin or glossy? It would help to know how long it takes for that to cure, though I know it would vary according to conditions.
