Hello! I just started trying to use Isomalt Sticks to make jewels and I have been almost completely happy with the results. The only issue I'm having is that I'm still getting just a few small bubbles in the finished jewels. Does anyone have suggestions on how I might correct that? I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!!!
torch them with a blow torch while still in the mold
are you using that isomalt gun dispenser thing???
it's like a glue gun for isomalt
No, I wasn't using the gun dispenser, but I did see that on the directions. Have you tried the gun? I was just melting the sticks in the microwave.
I think the gun has been having a lot of problems getting into the hands of the customers who purchased them. Maybe melt it in a silicone baking cup, and stir with a tooth pick.
i got an email about the gun recently but i wasn't interested so...i thought it had some production issues--sucha good idea though!
srsly--torch it -- the bubbles disappear like magic and it is really fun too!!!
