Guarding Against Moisture – All powders will absorb atmospheric moisture over time which will react with urethane resins. If you notice a moisture reaction between resin and powder or suspect that your Quarry Tone™ powder contains moisture, you can remedy by spreading powder evenly over a metal cookie sheet at ¼” (0.6 cm) thickness and bake in oven for 4 hours at 60° C. Allow to cool before mixing powder with resin. Store powder tightly closed container in a cool, dry environment with a desiccant pouch (available at your local hobby/arts and crafts store). Replace used desiccant pouches every other time you open container.
