Default Sticky Mess.

I made some bottlecaps yesterday and I think I must have slightly messed up the ET Lite mixture because today they are still sticky. The ones I did later, however, are fine. Sigh.

Is it possible they will still cure in a day or so or are they a lost cause? Is there anything at all I can do to salvage them?

Thanks ladies.

I have never used ET Lite but I love Rio Grande Colores for bottle caps. That stuff works great.

they most likely will not cure in a day or so if they haven't thus far...what I have done to salvage sticky caps is mix another batch of ET and put another coat over them. When that dries they should harden provided you mixed it properly. Can't promise a miracle but it can't hurt. I've salvaged many caps by doing this

Thanks CMags. My dad thought the same thing so we mixed up another batch but erred on the side of hardener this time lol. We've coated them lightly over the top so fingers crossed they can be saved!!
