Oil based paints are made up of pigments dissolved in a mineral spirit such as paint thinner. They can be thinned with mineral spirits, dry to a hard finish and have a strong odour. Latex paints are an emulsion suspended in water and can be thinned and cleaned using water and emit a low odour. Enamel is a general term for finishing materials that dry to a smooth finish and can be made with either Oil or Latex technology. The desired look and conditions will determine what paint to choose.
Drying times will vary so we would always recommend that you consult the tin or technical data sheet for the ideal conditions, environment and drying times to paint. Following the correct information could be critical to successful drying.
