When I craft I have a hard time waiting for paint, glue or Mod Podge to dry. So I figured out a way to speed dry my projects.
I have an old hair dryer that is too hot on one setting and too slow on the other setting for drying hair. But it’s perfect for drying my crafts quickly.
When I use the dryer on the high setting, I hold it about a foot away from my project and keep it moving over the whole area, and not letting it blow in one spot for long.
When the piece is mostly dry, I leave it alone for 15 or 20 minutes to finish drying before I add the next coat or continue with the next step.
This is a great tip for crafting with kids. They are usually impatient for their project to be done, and kids can help with the hair dryer if it’s used on a low setting and an adult is there to supervise.
