    How cool can it get before it affects hide paste and clay from drying.

    You definitely do not what it to freeze. My shop stays around 60 degrees in the winter, but it seems to me it is the humidity more than temperature that affects drying time.

    It's more a humidity thing. I use dehumidifiers and it doesn't really matter on temperature.

    Ok. Thank you. My normal shop stays above 60. But I'm wanting to turn that building in to a place to hang my personal mounts. And then turn my garage into my new shop. The garage dont get below freezing but I would guess that it get to low 50's or high 40's that's just a guess.
  5. This has been helpful. My shop is wood heat so once the fire goes out it basically gets down to whatever the outside temp is. But because of the fire the air stays REALLY dry. I had been bringing all my stuff in the house to dry the first few days (also makes it easier to check and make final small adjustments to sets )
