Wow  Shocked

I think I'm in love... they're amazing... You must write a tutorial or somthing, please!  Smiley

They're absolutly brilliant, I can just imagine somebody walking into a room and this porcelain woman's eyeball roling down her chest catching their eye. Amazing! Absolutly inspired!

You, miss, have a fine mind  Wink

Thank you!  The most unlikely-looking man bought the blind girl--I'm so glad she went to a good home!

Thank you, everyone for your compliments!  I was actually expecting to catch a lot of flak for these, so it's doubly sweet!

... I sanded them, first with a fine buffing block, then (over the parts that wouldn't show) with a rough (not sure which grit) piece of sandpaper.  I had almost no bubbling!...


SOP, you might try coating your surface with a white glue and letting it at least tack up before putting clay on a smooth metal next time... that both gives tooth and also acts as a buffer in the heating/cooling process which can help with bubbles and various other things.

I'm thinking your bubbles probably didn't come from that though because most clayers I know don't put anything on their Altoid tins before covering and don't have a problem.
There are various different things that can cause bubbling in sheets of clay though besides contact problems... if you want to read through and see if any might be helpful, check his page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/pastamachines.htm
...click on the "Air Bubbles" subcategory....)
...(don't have to be using a pasta machine... the info just got collected on that page)


There may be a bit more helpful info in the "Altoids" section of this page too:

Good luck, and make MORE!!!!!

Oh, and p.s. to everyone else, I have a bit of gory polymer stuff on my Halloween page too Grin:

My best friend/roomate often tell people that one of us beats the other up.  I don't know, it makes US laugh!  You did a swell (heh) job on the makeup!

Thanks for your help, Diane!  I'll try that glue trick.  I don't like heavy textures, so eliminating bubbles is important Smiley
