Just Use HeatIt is actually possible to make epoxy resin dry faster, just by using heat. Increase the temperature to 75-85ºF / 24-30ºC in the room where your piece is curing. The resin reaches 95% of its full cure within 24 hours, and 100% of its cure within 72 hours.
How to easily fix sticky ResinRecoat: Add another fresh layer of doming resin on top of the sticky spots. Move your artwork into a warmer spot for 24 and let it dry ( resin drying time 20-24 hours ).Sand the entiry sticky surface off with 80-grit sandpaper and pour another resin coat layer.
If your resin surface is simply sticky in a few spots, you can recoat with another layer of mixed resin. The sticky resin likely happened because you didn’t mix the resin and hardener thoroughly the first time, so be sure to pay extra attention to mixing it well this time.
How Long Does It Take Resin To Dry? ArtResin is dry to the touch within 24 hours, and fully cured within 72 hours. Say, however, you have a big show coming up and you’ve left it too late to pour your resin. Now you need it to dry ASAP so your artwork can be hung on time!
You cannot cure UV resin (also known as 1-part resin) without UV light. Direct sunlight exposure is enough to cure resin, but it might take more time than high UV wavelengths from a professional UV curing machine.
You can use a blow dryer or hair dryer to dry your resin art fast. To do this, simply plug in the dryer and blow it directly onto your resin art. But be cautious to not blow too hard and too warm.
Put your resin object in the sun if you don’t have a UV lamp. If you don’t want to bother with a UV lamp, you can simply set your resin object outside in the sun to cure. However, be aware that this could take longer or be less effective if you live in an area with a low UV index or the weather is overcast.
