    Default I made a mistake with epoxy

    I must have made a mistake with epoxy. I applied epoxy a few days ago and still sticky. Most likely not proper measured. Remedy is what I need. I have never had this happened. Epoxy is covering balsa raw, thanks for an answer is what I need. Thank you!

    You might try scraping it off with a razor blade or sharp putty knife...

    remove with acetone and scraping tools....I would also dilute some hardener with same acetone and soak into the epoxied areas and hope it cures so you dont get soft wetted balsa conditions like nitro fuel on raw balsa

    I've always used isopropyl or rubbing alcohol you can get from the drug store to remove unhardened epoxy. Works well without the fumes from acetone.

    Not sure what happened with your mix ratio, but just pointing out that mixing by weight is different than mixing by volume.
