Default Bottle cap trouble please help!!!

Ok ladies I am doing bottlecaps and I am mixing equal parts of et lite. It is curing ok but for some reason there is tiny little bubbles through out the caps even after heating them. Any tips on how to get them out?

you have to de-gas them...either exhale over them or use a lighter and run it just above/over the top. I have one of the grill lighter wand thingies that I use to de-gas mine. You may have to de-gas them a few times to get all the bubbles out...HTH

using the lighter over the bubbles a few times helps. I think I did it 3 times right away then would come back every so often to check on em and on some would still have to do it again.
good luck!

If there are alot of tiny bubbles you might want to let the resin sit for a minute after you stir before you start. I have lost a few caps because of the micro bublbles.
