Now the tricky part is to let the paint dry. Some bubbles will form and can be popped using a torch or an embossing heat gun. Do not apply to much direct heat to the paint or it will harden weird and crack. 
Really, this needs to dry for a couple of weeks. The slower it dries, the better. Do not warm it up or place it in the sunshine.

After about 4-6 hours of drying, transfer it carefully into a box, so you can close the lid. This will prevent bugs, hair and dust from falling in the paint. Then let it cure for seriously 2 weeks. Then you can finish off the top with clear gloss and hang it up for Autumn.
