I for one appreciate the fact that you posted a goof-up, many of us will learn much faster because of it. The fact that you fessed up to it, earns my respect. Thanks!

You could try this! Dip the lip in Virgin Laquer Thinner let dry & see if it clears up

Why not just coat over the uncured epoxy with Dick nites ? I have had a couple that were slightly tacky and I coated over them with no trouble.

Boy, you guys are making me air all my dirty linen. I can't get away with anything! Tough room!
I did try another coat of epoxy, but the first soft coat was D2T, since the lure is plastic, and the second coat I tried was Etex. Probably my second mistake. That coat didn't set up either. Another bad mix, probably. When you're on a roll......
I'll try the lacquer thinner next time.
I haven't tried DN yet, so I don't have any for coating on hand.
But I was thinking about trying it, so maybe this will be the catalyst.

I coat all my lures now first coat 2T and second coat Dick Nite because way too many times the Dick nite eats my paint.
Since I started doing this I have never had another problem.
Every once in a while my 2T is not mixed right and is slighlty tacky but once coated with DN it is good as new.

Actone... Never tried it!!! Now I know!
My best screw up trying to strip paint!
I put a lure with rubbing Alcohol in my wife;s sonic jelwery cleaner!! I thought those sonic waves combined with the alcohol would strip it back to a pefect blank... But ding dong here forgot the Sonic Cleaner was made out of plastic and I had to buy my wife a New Jewlery cleaner!!... I did give myself a A for imagnation! I really thought it would work!!!
