Here is an article on cold weather finishing.  Note that it is supplied by a vendor so they lean toward their product.

 

Remember that finishes "cure" by one of three methods

  • Evaporation of the solvent (spaghetti) lacquer, shellac, and wax
  • Chemical reaction with oxygen (tinkertoys) varnishes  (that also contains a dilutent that evaporates off first) and oils
  • Bonding of large molecules that have been softened (soccer balls) water borne

 

The first dry fast (minutes) but to fully cure take a bit longer, the second and third get solid in a few hours, but can take up to 21 days to fully cure.

 

Note that most chemical reactions double their speed with every 18F (10C) rise in temperature, conversely take twice as long when temperature drops, or may stop completely.

Well that explains a few things.  Basically this paint is probably not going to work for me?:)

Make patties out of it and stick it in the oven.

Just Saying,
