fiberglass on foam

I'm constructing an aircraft wing with a styrofoam core and a fiberglass skin. I coated the foam with an epoxy/glass slurry and applied a sheet of Triax fabric. It was a warm afternoon, the slurry cured quickly. I was supposed to pour epoxy over the fabric while the slurry was still tacky but ran out of time and now several days have passed. If I go ahead and apply epoxy to the fabric liberally and work it in well will it soak thru the Triax and adhere to the slurry and the foam or have I ruined this very expensive piece of this project?
