So I put in two new bathroom sinks and faucets and used plumber's putty to set the drains. Waited for 12 hours before turning on the water and both drains leak. Did I not wait long enough?

Is what I used, about a pencil thickness just below the flange on the new drain. I finished at about 6pm and did not use until after 6:30am the next morning and it is definitely leaking from around the drain. I have the gasket installed underside and the locking ring (?) as tight as I can get it so now I am at a loss of what my next step is. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
