Thanks so much Meredith..
I also ordered the Jody Bishell video in hopes it will help...
I squeegied and poked and have no diluent..just ordered that to come along
with the video...oddly enough this reminds me of starter culture...LOL it
even continues to blister and pop after baking and cooling...i thought i
wass seeing things so did an experiment and scanned the piece every 10 min
for a half hour....i was not halucinating...they were appearing and
popping...the can of TLS was bent when it came...spose it is like
food....bent can...fermentation? LOL
I appreciate your reply...
I did find one online hint that said to prepare your project to bake...but
leave it set out overnight and that allows the bubbles to form an pop and
then carefully squeegie in the AM to go to the oven.....
I am gonna go back to regular ClayinAround...hehehe good ol premo and
Sculpey til i get the tape...I am so new to all this.
