This is a depressingly regular thing that is reported on the forums and social media. You could try rescuing your model by overcoating it with clear gloss, that's the usual remedy for frosting caused by excess flatting agent. 


I had same issue. Went over it again with the it and it cleared.


Biggest tip shake the hell out of it stir it. Then when you think it's done shake and stir it again. Unless it's completely mixed it will cloud.
