rutile: powdered vs. granulated

All these posts about Rutile Blue lead me to ask:

I have powdered (finely ground) rutile and somehow I have ended up with a few pounds of sparkly granulated rutile (remember the cluttered, maybe well-stocked studio conversation?).

When I try the granulated rutile in a glaze recipe it just sinks to the bottom. My equipment includes basic sieve styles and drill- mixer.

Anything I can use it for/do with it? (cone 5/6 electric)
