I know the frustration!!!
Haven't painted a door for a few years, but I pick a warm, sunny day
to paint, start in the morning and let the paint dry as long as
possible, then tear off a length of wax paper long enough to span the
door's edge, then close the door on the wax paper. You will have to
tear knotches for around the hinges. I know it sounds like a waste of
wax paper, but I'll gladly pay $2 or $3 more to not have the paint
stick together. Look at it as a form of masking tape. Since you
paint allot of doors, you could minimize waste and probably cut 5 or 6
strips from the long sheet.
THEN, re-open the door the next morning ASAP to dry some more
thoughout the day.
