Hmm I'm getting my info from the anime scenes where Deidara was resurrected to fight Ohnoki.
Kabuto waited quite a bit (let's say a couple hours?) to finally use a talisman on Deidara. Beforehand, Deidara's eyes were completely black, and he created a clay bird to fly towards the island turtle THEN when they got close, Kabuto used a talisman.
<~ 5:20 to 5:30 and also 6:00 onwards
Not that it's that big of a deal I guess, but I definitely don't think I'm pulling anything out of my ass lol.
