    Hello guys, i am making an enclosure for my incoming water dragon and had some questions about the stain and sealant.
    1. If i stain the outside how long do i have to wait before sealing it with polyurethane? Do i let it cure for a month and then seal or what?
    2. How long do i need to wait for just the sealant to cure.
    3. Also thinking of doing a stain mural picture thing on the inside and then sealing so how long do i need to wait before sealing with poly.
    4. what are the best enclosure safe adhesives
    Thanks in advance

    I could be wrong, but I think you only have to wait for the stain to dry (so, a day or so, depending on conditions) before you poly it. Also, I don't think you need to poly the outside, even if its stained. As with the poly dry time, it depends on the poly and the conditions. Remember to sand lightly between layers and to let it fully dry between them too. I believe the off-gas time for poly is 2 weeks.l, if I remember correctly. As for adhesive, what are you sticking? And will you be sealing it with poly afterwards?
