    I had some mixed coating that went solid a couple of years ago. Bottle was not sealed and all the acetone evaporated. It is nearly impossible to get it back into a liquid state. Probably could have ground it up but it was kind of soft for that...

    Thanks for the input Ausglock. I also still have a little of the first coating I bought in 2014. It is the liquid 1035 Gold. It has been stored in the basement all this time. The last time I used it the bullets turned out a little dark but...
