where will it will dry faster?

it's 95 degrees and humid where I am; where will small spray-painted items dry faster: outside or in my relatively cool basement?

Although heat can help things dry faster, 95* won't make much difference over 85*
It also could be too high for the paint
It will say so on the can, like Temp 60* - 80* or something
The humidity will affect it greatly also...not in a good way

I'd say your basement, especially if the humidity is lower there

Heat and air movement will both speed up drying. Cool air and humidity both slow done the drying process.
