I painted some exposed wood surfaces (window beams) with an acrylic/oil mix stain/sealant. The can said to paint when rain is not expected in 24 hours and that drying time is 24 hours. I did not see any rain in the forecast, although this time of year it's possible for scattered thunderstorms to show up unpredicted. Sure enough, only 8 hours later a short downpour rolled through.
Now what? I examined the wood surfaces and they appear wet although I am not sure if that is simply because the rain touched the surface or if the paint has actually gotten wet. It wasn't terribly humid last night (< 50%) and the surfaces were looking - not dry - but they had already changed noticeably from the wet sheen when paint is first applied to a duller appearance, so I am thinking maybe after 8 hours they are (hopefully?) dried enough to resist a quick downpour, but what if more rain comes? I don't see any evidence of running at the moment. After everything is completely dried out, should I apply another coat just to be safe? Or do I need to try to sand everything down and try again? It's a rather irregular (older) wood and not completely smooth even after extensive sanding.
