Yes, you should dry the Benzoylperoxide, but be very careful.
Benzoylperoxide becomes explosive when dry, so please only dry small
amounts, carefully. Air bubbles are usually introduced during the mixing
of the resin components these can generally be removed by placing the
resin in a vacuum chamber for a short time. Sorry but wrinkles in
methacrylate resins go hand in hand in my experience.
