There is a technique popular in S&G construction called, "wet on wet". It came about back in the days when all epoxies produced a lot of amin blush. The idea was to get all your layers/laminations on long before the amin blush had a chance to form. Even tho' epoxies are better now it's still a valid idea. You get the best crosslinking of two layers if they both are still "green". And it saves a lot of time. There is no need to wash/wipe/sand a "green" surface. Once a layer has stiffened enough so it won't be disturbed you can recoat or add a laminate. The shortcoming is you have to lay out a longer block of time to do all the layers.
