Default What do you use dry-time for?

That is while the paint or glue dries?

I usualy play some old turned based strategy game, doing my turn and then paint or glue while the AI does theirs.

Good to be green

Normally I watch a movie while painting so I just carry on watching the movie or start painting the next model.

I normally have about 3-4 things on the go so when something is drying, another thing is being painted.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

Aye, I'm the same, batch painting = never ending depressing cycle of painting with no down time.

I do watch stuff while painting though. Game of Thrones season 3 at the moment

I tend to have more than one thing on the go at once. While something is drying I crack on with something else.

I've always got music playing whilst I paint and usually I'll have either a whole squad being churned through at once or if I'm doing a vehicle I would have broken it into smaller segments to paint. Occasionally if I'm getting close to the end of something, and so each brush stroke more or less means I'm needing to wait, ill grab another project and start the boring base coating on that whilst I'm waiting.
