Sean Anwalt the other day I was carrying around the mask (which has metal snaps) in my coat pocket to show off to my customers. I was making a delivery to the maintenance department of a court house. As I approached the metal detector luckily I realized and said, hey guards I think I need to go put something back in my car... "why, what do you have" ... uuuh a mask? As I pull it out of my pocket. "Yeah, you better turn around." :lol::lol:

Nooooooooo!

I messed up! :'(

I applied a nice thick layer of Rondo to the bow prop... without a lick of liquid catalyst or cream hardener. :(

What do I do?

My first thought was that I at least need it to be warmer. I know that bondo can never properly cure without the hardener, but resin can. I'm hoping the resin helps move it along.

My next plan will be to sit there with a heat gun until it's dry enough to not move from brush strokes, then apply another layer with extra hardeners.

My only other thought was to somehow mist the liquid catalyst and spritz it on top of the uncured layer.

I think an additional layer with the appropriate hardener is going to be your best bet, man. Don't over- compensate too much with the catalyst, though; you run the risk of getting clumpy, choppy results and destroying your finish.
