How do I get those bubbles?
I have admired some gorgeous fused glass jewelry that has imbedded bubbles. I know there's a way to use baking soda. I've seen recipes that say 1 teaspoon per cup of water, and another that says "make a paste". But when I tried the paste I got HUGE bubbles that burst. The 1 teasp/cup didn't work at all. Have any of you found the right balance? Any other tips from you members on achieving bubbles in jewelry pieces? (I have discovered that brass inclusions sometimes bubble a little around the edges--a nifty look.) Thanks for your help.
