Cool! You should find out exact measurements if you can.. And how long does it take to dry?

The measurements are there.They are in parts, so you can use teaspoons, tablespoons, or whatever size you wish to use/make... It takes about 30 minutes to dry, but the dry time varies depending on how thick you paint it on. Thank you for viewing/watching!
