    No it will not change the color just will quicken the time it takes to get hard just be careful too much and it will harden before you get it spread.

    Adding a "tiny bit" too much hardener will make the mix set faster. Adding a lot more hardener will prevent he mix from hardening properly. It will remain flexible and "soft" and not bond properly to the repair area.

    I was asking because I ordered some GelCote paste and took it to my repair guy to fix a minor repair. The color looks like a perfect match and cost a crap load for a small jar. After the repair I noticed the color was not a very good match and called the company. I was told that he must have added to much "hardner" as an explanation. Hmm, sounds kind of weird.

    You may try some polishing compond on it to blend into the surronding gelcoat. Gelcoat is kindof like the old Lacquer paint you have to polish it to bring out the shine.
