So the repair is on hold while I sand and chip away at the finish applied. I'm planning on repainting and then trying another form of sealer after the acrylics have completely cured. What I have concluded after talking to other artists who have had similar faux pas..... the icon is plaster which retains a cooler surface temperature . it was very cool in my studio the day I applied the second coat and I hadn't warmed up the room which means the icon surface was very cool. This could very well have made the polyurethane wrinkle in the process. So , what was an hour long fix is now turning into a week. This is where what little patience I have comes from..... gotta keep breathing!
