I haven't used all brands (obviously) but the difference may be that some are prone to dry more slowly, due to differences in the formulas. Cold weather, of course, would slow it down even more.

If it's a small area, you might try a heat lamp... but don't get it too hot!

Over Five day's at 90* is a long time to sit and wait... I wonder how many more days it will take...

The reason you can glass over that glass ,,Is because it doesn't have wax added..The one with the wax added you will have to sand in between layers..
