I did forget one important step, I use a stick cut from a cheap paint brush that fits into the caps to gently press form the mix. This I do dry because sometimes the wet mix would flow up around the stick and not stay in the cap, this is done GENTLY so as not to fluff the powder out of the cap. Then seal! I press the caps out as soon as the caps absorb the sealer….wait to long and they tend to glue to the drilled paint stir stick. Don’t forget to wash your hands antimony is toxic.
