How do I fix my countertop mess up?

I bought "Famowood" Glaze Coat to do all my kitchen counters. The first counter came out pretty good! Then I moved to my breakfast counter and stove counter, but I wasn't leveling out like it should. My last counter I decided to go with Minwax Polycrylic. As I finished the one counter I decided to use the same roller over the glaze coat and see if that would smooth it out... that's were the problem started! As it begin to dry it started having indention's all over it! Now it has some shinning areas and clouding areas and wrinkles. Do I need to sand off the top layer of polycrylic and re-coat the counter?

    You could light;y sand to smooth out the whole problem area. Apply the finish coat you want. Your problem came when you used the same roller with a mix of two incompatible finishes. Usually in order to mix you need to use the same brand of product and be sure to read instructions carefully so as not to make more work for yourself.

    I would use a sander until its smooth, tack cloth it, and then reapply the epoxy .... once its applied leave it alone to do its thing. I like to use a pour technique and spread with a rubber squeegee if needed for a large piece, then don't touch it. One of the other problems is incorrect mixing, i.e. not scraping the sides and bottom, and mixing for the correct length of time. Don't mix all at once if your doing more than one counter, cause it will begin setting up before you get to the next counter and won't pour right.,,, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OXCywR-Smk

      Mad, how long did you leave them into the potato? It takes a while for the roots to generate.
