Blister and air bubbles in fusing result
I am new to fusing and have done about 3 successful fusing firings. This weekend, I did have some problems. One firing, the center of the work blistered. I researched and came up with the shelf was probably a bit uneven. I cleaned and rewashed the shelf. This seemed to help quite a bit. The next firing I did left a large air bubble. Is it possible to fill in the blistered piece and put a clear glass behind it and refire? Is it possible to refire the air bubble piece to remove the air? or have I just learned a couple of lessons? I have another fusing to do tonight. so I will be making sure everything goes right.
Thank you for your input.
