Not sure about answers to your questions; maybe Peter Blackburn will know. However, from experience, it is quicker with everything so I don't mess around...I have coated, dried on cool with a hair dryer and exposed immediately. But I have also done 8 at once and thus the last one definitely sits over 1/2 hour.

It has been sitting on the counter for 2 days, actually today is a third day and I have not noticed any viscosity changes. It looks exactly as I have mixed it fresh. My first attempt in printing was a disaster. I have not made anything that bad in a long time. Looking at it I think I overloaded it with black pigment. It looked so dark and beautiful when brushing. Unfortunatly it mostly flaked out leaving a horrible stain and traces of the image.
