The anchor seal may dry if you keep it warm in your vehicle until you brush it on. I have not tried on a frozen log but that is my best guess.

Definitely keep your Anchor seal can warm. Never let it freeze. One of my winter do-list items; bring the Anchor seal into the house! But while it’s warm, (above 32) brush it on. It works even if the outside temp is below 32. I’ve tried shellac, latex paint, spray paint… Nothing beats Anchor seal!

Anchor seal will dry when it is cooler, but it takes longer, the same as hanging out the laundry, when it is warm en dry it goes fast, but cool en damp and it takes long.
