i cast some pendants in a silicon muffin tray last sunday.  almost all of it is hardened - all along the bottom and the sides, and on the top surface all around the outside.  just the very middle is still tacky.   i used easycraft EPOXY resin, so it's not like the orange peel sticky.  it's just sticky.  will it ever cure?? am i doomed?

Oh argh, I hate that!  Perhaps your measuring wasn't quite right on?  I use Envirotex lite and if I used too large of a cup to measure my parts, sometimes it would remain tacky.

Now, what I do is use syringes to measure out the exact amount of each part that I need and I pretty much have 100% success with that.
