Your "blotch" could be an area of poor adhesion. Did you squeegee it to make it stick? Once the epoxy is on for a few hours, adding more won't fix it. I once had a problem like this that I missed due to poor lighting and my chronic laziness. The epoxy was just soft enough to respond to a heavy dose of vineger, which softened the epoxy more (washed most of it off, actually) and allowed me dry and recoat the area. Can't recall how it looked cosmetically, as I didn't care since I was going to paint the area.

If it is poor adhesion, and you do want a clear finish, you may have to carefully (very) cut out the glass with a sharp utility knife, or (better) a new single edged razor blade, then reglass it.

Wish I could be more encouraging, but if it's poor adhesion, in a large area, you have to fix it.
