layering intensity, and drying times

When people view my work I often get asked, so how long will this take you? and the answer is, as long as it takes, and I am not being facetious, but processes take time, and especially if work has to dry out in between layers. I usually combat this by having several things on the go at the same time. At the moment I am building layers onto half spheres, but on others that have been cast, digging down and carving into, undercutting, I love this, and find the process  very meditative. My ideas seems to be flowing and it is difficult to keep up with it, but I am not complaining, long dark winter nights are here and the sofa, the fire, and the sketch book the ideal scenario to notate.
