    I'd say about an hour. The best thing to do is give it an acetone bath. This gets rid of the excess salt, while leaving the patina intact. You can do it under a light stream of water, but it will wash out some of the patina. If you didn't sprinkle with salt, then just sand and or rinse to get your desired effect, let it dry (if necessary) again, then give it 2 light clear coats. Let it cure, sand again, then a heavier clear cot. Let that one cure, then sand/polish.

    Do you have high grit polishing paper/cloths? Use 6,000-12,000 for the best gloss possible.

    Your base looks great - I think you'll be happy with the end result.

    Dude, I don't mind helping, but I don't have time to be your source. The Facebook group is a great place with lots of information. It's free. Also look at YouTube. There's a lot more out there than I can possibly offer you.
