It takes up to about 24 hours. And then if you are going to paint it you are going to need to let that dry to which I would give that a day ( 24hours) as well.

I've made a few pinatas for my children and a few mache fish, It always took about 24 hours to dry. That was for smaller pieces. maybe by letting it dry mostly leaving it a little damp between layers, enough to bond, but to control molding, again more important for larger pieces. You can insure a positive outcome.
