are you heating it to the right temperature?


some of that stuff doesn't last long


and sometimes it does last forever


are you using white food color or any food color?


you want to add it while it's still coming to temp to boil off any water


so many variables


very tempermantal medium


what do you think the white spots are? bubbles?


you can get bubbles out with a blow torch


it's one of those things that you have to have a great teacher


and lots of experience handling it and the right products


but it can be more of a last minute thing to help ensure best results


certainly there are peeps who can do it in their sleep but there's a learning curve


like you didn't know that already - but keep practicing and practicing etc etc

AIt may just be a matter of location and improper storage....

The white dots I don't know about, but you can usually get the shine back by rubbing it with some vegetable oil.
