A friend warned me about the heat and foam issue if I used too much epoxy at one time, that's why I did it in two steps.

In the one hole where the foam was visible, it did not appear to be wet.

I have only worked with glass and epoxy a few times, so I am not an expert, but I think the work will last. I painted today (appliance enamel).

Thanks to all that offered help.

The thing to remember about working with epoxy is that in trying to fill relatively larger areas you can change things greatly by working with recommended fillers. It dilutes the affect of concentrated amounts of epoxy. Moreover, you can always go with the slow hardner to reduce the temperature impact of the catalytic reaction even further.
