Awesome stuff Syr. Shame it wasn't as you desired. Oh bother, here's looking forward to the next one.
BTW Please comment on what you think of the acryllic design in my log. I'm passing it over to my guy tomorrow, as it's too terribly precise to do mysef.
I popped into your thread, fished around and left a note...
Hmmmm...I know the feeling.
Sometimes it's just best to start again...
RE Bubble Trouble are you using a capillary applicator and medium solvent? there are a number of different solvents...perhaps you will find one with the correct properties.
Although I wrestle with bubbles when fusing I found a few tricks that help...
oh? you wantes to knows???
I use the edge of a fresh utility blade and blade scrape the edge after sanding. I never flame or polish any edge that I want to bond--i simply knock it down till it's true and scrape it.
Never use tape either...I use the weight of the pieces to make the joint seal up...
I think the main part is finding the right solvent and developing a sort of mindless/timeless application technique where the only thing that you are aware of is the flow rate of the solvent...and only fill the applicator 1/3rd full...
Keep then coming...
*takes up acrylic, solvent and blade... assumes Lotus*
Heh... really though, I do like a good trance-state.
