also the fan won't help really its a chemical reaction that has to do with heat, but a heat lamp on it and see if that helps

if you can get some hardener and brush over it, or just do an entire 2nd coat in a VERY VERY hot ( ie more hardener than normal ) mix it would work I think

most of the time when I glass something my resin is hardening while its still in the cup, total cure time is less than 3 minutes lol
