Quick Paint Dry Time Question

Just painted my DIY canopy and I was wondering how long should I let it dry for before I put it on my tank? I think it is an oil based paint.

You should let it sit out and off as long as possible.

Just because the paint is dry dosn't mean its not continuing to emit fuems, fuems that may harm your tank
