Cut your hands off.

Ps. Wear a fricking glove next time.

fiber glass is some nasty stuff when you get it in your skin.

You really, really should be wearing complete body cover, and I hope you are wearing a dust mask and eye protection.

If not, be prepared for a few days of insanity.

edit: If it hasn't hardened this works great. It will dry your hands out terribly but it will melt the resin right off. If it's already hardened, it's a much tougher proposition.

What kind of resin? Epoxy? Polyester? The type of resin you're using doesn't really have that much to do with the fact that you're using fiberglass.

Holy crap, wear gloves and a mask, please. That sh!t really sucks to get on (and under) your skin. Whatever you do, don't start rubbing your hands, or it'll embed the fiberglass into your skin, like thousands of little splinters (clear, invisible splinters)...

Its just the resin I touched with my hands not the fiber glass. Its a polyester resin.

Ah, yeah.. I didn't catch the word resin.

Acetone, xylene.. maybe even alcohol should work.. laquer thinner.. carb cleaner.

Or gasoline.
