The basic problem is either too much or too little resin at the point of the fold. Must be all even. Try thins: After applying the resin, lay a couple (or 3) layers of plain toilet paper over, The cheap kind, not the one with embossed flowers or any pattern on it. Now hand rub firmly all over the paper. This serves two purpose (1) it assures that all the cloth, including where the folds were, get saturated with resin, and (2) it eliminates all existing puddle or high buildup of resin. The result is an even resin coat that will require little sanding. Another coat of resin, then on to primer and color.
Another good idea: googles and vinyl gloves.
