Pulled out my stencil paste that I bought a couple of years ago and haven't used and it is not soft and spreadable - it is hard. Is it possible to make it spreadable again.

Any suggestions would be help - These are a 10 color pack

Thanks in advance

Oh how sad...10 bottles! Sorry I have never heard of it drying out or recovery dried paste. I have had Dreamweaver paste for over 5 years and it is still wonderful and I live in an extremely dry climate.

This summer, I had a small container of some that dried up. I was able to scrape the top layer off with a small knife and I added a couple of spritzes of water to it and mixed it in. It softened up quite a bit.

Not sure of water can harm it or not. It didn't really effect the container I had.

Good luck! Hopefully others may know of more suggestions.

Hi, Ann! Sorry to hear that you have lovely stencil paste that has dried out. Have you sent an e-mail to the manufacturer? They might have the best solution. Good luck!

I had a jar of stencil paste that had sort of the opposite problem and got moldy. I had bought it at a rubber stamp/scrapbook convention, at the vendors fair. The next time I went I saw the same folks there again and told them about it. They were super nice and handed me another jar to replace it (free).
