I'm going to assume you mean the lines you get within the transfer when the BC doesn't completely meld together. I get those too and they really pi$$ me off icon_biggrin.gif I find that I have to use a fairly thin BC to fill in with in order to avoid them. When I don't thin my icing enough I still get them.

Yes KTB4 I am speaking of the lines you get when it does not meld together. I do not like these lines it seems annoying to me. I will try thinning out a little bit more but the instructions states med consistency.

Yeah I know the instructions say medium and that's what I tried when I started. However through trial and error I discovered that thinner works best for me.

Have fun, I love doing these icon_smile.gif

I warm my BC when using the FBCT method. I use a thick BC for my outlines, then basically flood the insides with a warm BC.

I very seldom get the lines.
