So I will admit here that I picked up a 2oz bottle of Pro-Tec powder paint brought my jig pouring gear over a friends house to pour some jigs together. Well left all my gear in my truck, it was 90*F here on Tuesday, now my powder paint is more like a paper weight paint got so hot it solidified in the bottle. Oh well new bottle of paint here I come.

I had some like that once. I put it in a bag and beat the tar out of it until it turned back into powder.I

You really need to grind it up and do so until it gets to a powder state otherwise it will create heavy spots and the jigs won't look good not to mention when you hang them to cure the excess paint will run a little bit causing the paint to form a nipple on it. Get some new paint and be done with it, also you don't need to use the pro-tec, if you are using basic colors harbor freight has their own and it is cheaper than the pro-tec. Are you using a fluid bed or just dipping jigs into a jar of paint? I ask because if you smash up the powder enough to be useable, when you put it in a fluid bed the bigger clumps will not fluidize and you can actually use the fluid bed to sort out what is good paint from the stuff you need to crush more.
