I can't imagine there would be an issue, but so far I haven't imagined a lot of little things that have been important on this project.
In every case, waiting "longer" between coats is "Mo Bedder" than rushung the next coat.
The dryer the previous layer is, the less apt it is to absorb moisture from the following coat. That means less likelihood of "lifting and/or peeling", runs or "sliding", or the development of orange-peel texture.
Dusters do dry faster than normal coats. But also, since they seem so sparse, some go aead and just "dust again". And again.
And with these HVLP Guns squirting out such wet droplets, while they might be very small droplets, it doesn't take very many of them crowding close in on each other to run together....get some accumulated mass going for 'em, and start a vertically displaced "ooze" a'sliding on down..
Of course there is a fine balance between applying a maximum amount of paint without experiencing any of the above. It's a verrrry
fine line made finer still by the paint's own thin properties. We advocate repeated 'Wet Dusters" because the surface's paint density builds up gradually, and far fewer Souls have to resort to wiping down a screen that looks like the sides of a hot Cinnamon roll just after having been iced.
If you have temps over 80, and moderate humidity (50 -60%), a normal Duster should be acceptably dry after 1 full hour. Overnight.....and it's ready for some real abuse.
