Lizer It's come off. In fact before I even had any answers here I wasn't right with the fact that I could scratch it away so I started taking it back off. I think I obviously mixed it a little too lean. It was a hot day when I was applying and everything was kicking so fast.

dinger Re-do fer shure! If you can scratch the surface with your fingernail the problem is just rearing it's ugly head, Paint will be a nightmare and you will be kicking yourself later, it's much easier to do this now.

jcclark Or clean enough, you don't want any dust in the scratches,
especially for filler transitions.
I learned that the hard way too.

MARTINSR RE-DO for sure. There is a good possibility you also didn't get the surface scratched well enough for it to stick.

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.
