Default Bubbles...bubbles...

too many bubbles...
After spending a wonderful week in Eugene, OR at Glass Stock I'm trying marbles again. Unfortunately, all my latest attempts have fuzzy bubbles in them.
Don't know what I'm doing wrong but I'd sure like to correct it....I'll keep trying.


Of course, the bottom one should have the big bubbles cuz I used a pin frog....but it's the little fuzzy ones I need to get rid of.
Sorry for the bad pictures...gotta work on that too.

Suz,
Looks like you were working the glass w/ a lot of o2. If the yellow on the top one is goldenrod, that stuff can bubble if you look at it funny. Same with the mint colored leaves.
Nice rise in the glass though. Is the bottom glass amber purple? It can also bubble big time. Keep at it!.

Thanks Dave,
I'm using a Scorpion with 2 5lpm oxycons. I've only been using this set up for a few weeks. I'll try cutting back on the 2nd oxy and see what happens.

And remember when you're working the face of the maria itself, keep the heat gentle and work your design in slowly...
