I built a small table, and was spraying a clear lacquer finish. I usually build up at least three coats with a scuff in between.

In a rush to get on to work, I shot the last coat yesterday morning. It was cool and very humid at the time.

I may have gone a little heavy, but never had problems before.

I go back at noon, and could see white foggy areas on the corners.

Brought it in the house hoping lower humidity would pull the moisture out...
Today it looks better, but there's still a little in a few places...

Will it continue to cure out or should I just sand it off and shoot again?
Maybe put a heat lamp on it?
I have to deliver it friday...

We've also had that problem when we've sprayed when it was very Humid and only when it was humid. We only spray it now if it's low humidity or we have the air on in the house.

I would spray some lacquer thinner over the whole piece with a little retarder mixed in.
