I am trying to encase small implosions into a single encased pendant but, I am running into the same problem regardless of what I try.
1) When I encase each implosion, I end up with a thin visible boundary line at the interface between the implosion and the encasing clear (Most likely I am trapping a thin layer of air at the interface). I have found that the amount of heat required to remove the line (make the line coalesce into an air bubble?) is excessive, leading to distortion and movement of the implosions.
2) I often have difficulties in blending layers of encasing clear, especially when I am trying to fill crevices between the implosions. What I see is a line between the layers of clear (trapped air?). Again, in order to get rid of these lines, I need to apply too much heat and I end up with distorsion and movement of the implosions.
Any advice as to how I may be able to solve these problems?
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
