Sherwin Williams 66 glazing not drying

I'm reglazing some windows using SWP 66 glaze, and it's been about three weeks and the glaze still hasn't dried. When touched there is an indent. Talked to Sherwin Williams customer support and they really didn't have any advise. I'm in Georgia and the weather has been unusually hot......should I wait, or is there something wrong with the glaze?

It doesn't really dry... at least not for a year or so. It's dry enough to prime and paint anytime though.

Ya, that is pretty much how it works. I think you are supposed to wait 24 hrs before painting but I've painted over it many times after just a few hrs with no issues. IMO the SWP 66 is one of the better glazing compounds out there.

If you read the can carefully they provide painting instructions.For best results, glazing should be painted after it is applied.For latex paint let cure several days For oil paint let cure overnight.
