[Cob] Finish Coat Help NeededStephen Karrington sales at diamondcard.us

Hello, I have a bar area that has a finish coat that is too oily/greasy/waxy. Basically, it is never going to dry :( Its been like that for months and no change at all in getting dry over time. Not only is the surface greasy, but its very soft too. Anything can dent it or gouge it. It looks like soft clay mixed with color and no glue was used to do this. As well as oil and wax on top. What can I do about this? Scrape it off and do another finish coat? Or can I just rub it a bit to get some consistent looking surface then seal it with something that will actually dry on top? I am hoping for a suggestion of something to finish and seal it and finally get it finished and usable. Its currently a red color. Another area I have is a seating area. The seating part we redid and refinished with a blend of sand, color and local non-toxic rubber. This went on and dried and looks fine and can be sat on. All good. The sides of this seating area were not done properly either. This is the part where your back would lean against when sitting in it. The problem with this part is the color comes right off when touched! If you put your hands on the surface and pull them off your hands become blue :) hehe. Any suggestions on what to do about this? Its smooth, dry and very dusty. I don't think anything put on top of it will stick to it. That's what I'm worried about. It would a massive job to try and remove this dry dusty surface because there is nothing to actually grab onto to pull it off. We would have to chisel it out somehow to remove the top dusty finish part. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do about this? Thanks. Stephen
