Does the same advice for exterior painting in rainy weather, i.e. don't paint if raining/high humidity, hold for painting indoors? How about for painting in a garage with doors open?

I'm trying to paint some new cypress lawn furniture and the weather is NOT cooperating! Will the high humidity cause problems with the primer (XIM 400 Clear fast-drying primer) and/or top coat (Sherwin-Williams oil-based finish) adhering to the cypress or will it only result in a longer drying time?

Thanks in advance for any advice you might provide!

High heat and/or humidity will cause drying and adhesion problems.

Wait until it is no higher than about60% RH or less - and around 65-80 degrees.

A larger question would be why are you using alkyd on exterior? 100% Acrylic latex will last much longer.

In addtion to what Mr. Paint said if you are painting oil based paint in thoes conditions it will dry either flat or splotchy and you will have to paint it over. So it is best to wait for dry conditions.
