If it was not fully mixed, it’ll never set up. I had the same experience recently where I was mixing a large batch to fill a void in mesquite. I filled the mixing cup too full and it made it hard to stir thoroughly. Apparently I had some unmixed material in there because after I poured it, the surface stayed sticky. I left it while I worked on other pieces and after several days the situation hadn’t changed. Fortunately it was a deep void and that was just the first pour, so I was able to wipe it clean and pour more.

Anyway, acetone will clean off the stick part and get you down to cured epoxy. I can’t guarantee that what you get down to will be hard enough to sand though. Getting an inadequate mix just screws everything up.
