I think my filler is too soft...

After glassing over my quarter skin seam, I started skimming with some Marson Platinum, with about a 6 inch spread from top edge of skin down. Some parts of the bottom feather in very nicely and smooth...looks like a cloud to me. Other parts are scratched and jagged...can't get that nice smooth transition. These parts are probably from a different mix. I can actually scratch it off along that edge with my finger nail. Can't do this along the pillow soft edge.

I'm thinking I didn't quite get enough hardener in the mix. I'm ready to take it off and redo. Unfortunately I have a pretty nice level cut. Should I redo or am I overreacting? I applied it over epoxy sprayed two days previous.
