Drying pen blanks with DNA

How long should I soak my pen blanks in DNA before I set them out to dry? They are 3/4 x 6" long. After I remove them should I wrap them up in something or let them air dry? They had a moisture content of 32%.

Wouldn't they be sticky?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I think 1 - 2 days to soak. And yes I would wrap them up. I haven't done this as I'm not a pen turner but these are the general guidelines when soaking bowl blanks. Hopefully someone with experience can chime in.
