  • Bubbles

    I've recently started playing around with polymer clay and I've just got some translucent fimo but so far every time I take it out of the oven it has lots of bubbles in it and my pieces are ruined, can anyone tell me why? Am I doing something wrong, I've not had any problems with the "normal" fimo, so wondered if it's the clay?

    Hiya. Is it actually surface bubbles, or bubbles 'within' the clay?

    If it's the latter then it is quite common for translucent clays to 'plaque' during baking. You can read a little more here.

    If it is surface bubbles then you may need to condition the clay for a bit longer, or conversely, make sure that air bubbles are not introduced by rolling/working the clay too much.

    There are much more experinced polymer clayers on here - hopefully someone will be along soon with some better advice

      They're in the clay and some are quite big,
      thought it might be because I worked the clay too much, so tried again with minimal working but the same happened again!
