Topics Covered In This Video:
- Sometimes, when baking your polymer clay pieces, a bubble or two will show up when you take it out of the oven. In a previous video (Avoiding Bubbles in Your Polymer Clay), I demonstrated how to avoid trapping air in your clay before the piece is baked. But in cases where some bubbles are missed, or if you have some old pieces with bubbles showing, today’s video will teach you a quick trick to help fix, or at least minimize the look of those pesky flaws.
- You can either work with the bubbled piece while it is still warm from the initial bake… or you may also re-heat to get the polymer temperature back up.
- Sandwich hot bubbled clay between two smooth heat proof surfaces and apply pressure until the piece is cool. I used to smooth glass tiles in the video.
- This process should flatten the bubbles and make them disappear or appear less noticeable. If it hasn’t worked to your liking, repeat process by re-heating, and try again.
