DIY Hide dry time?

I’m just about finished with a custom basking rock and hide for my dragon, but I’ve seen a lot of conflicting advice about dry times for sealant.
I used Minwax Polycrilic water-based over a top layer of grout. Some places say to give it a couple days to air out, but others say to give it up to three weeks before putting it under a heat source - does anyone have experience with this? I’ve not used this type of sealant before on anything that needed to be kept non toxic

I would say add the dry time for both together and before putting it in the enclosure put it under a heat source to see if emits a smell.

If you can still smell it putting off fumes, it's not fully cured. You can put it under a heat source if you want, but don't expose your dragon to it until its done off gassing.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
