How do i get the gold leaf adhesive to dry?



I applied gold leaf adhesive to a canvas and it leaked into unwanted areas as it dried. Short of applying the gold leaf sheets, is there a way to get it to dry and not be sticky? It's been 2 months and it's still sticky.

    Gold leaf adhesive is made to be intentionally sticky until the leaf is applied. Unwanted areas will remain sticky for life. You can try blotting the adhesive with Goo Gone or WD40.
