Apoxie sculpt is a chemical reactions, and as a rule heat speeds up chemical reactions so putting it in a hot room, or sticking it in the oven for a bit on low will speed it up. I usually just leave my figures in the warmest room of my house to cure, which conveniently is my bedroom.
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

I'm not sure, but I think I once read something about being able to buy a catalyst additive that can speed up the curing time. I imagine different brands/mixes have different curing times as well, maybe it might be worthwhile to do some research and find an epoxy compound that works faster.
