Koi Tutorial from Polymer Clay 1/3 by SmallCreationsByMel Koi Tutorial from Polymer Clay 1/3 by SmallCreationsByMel
Hey guys! I made a tutorial on how I made the Koi fish for my Koi pond out of polymer clay. I hope you guys will like this! I will also post a tutorial on how to make the lily pads and the pond itself in a few days.

i had a ton of trouble with air bubbles in my resin and I followed the directions. Any idea for the next one since I'd really like to not have as many or any air bubbles again.

bubbles come up when the resin is either mixed too fast/roughly, or the thing you use to mix it with doesn't stay in contact with the bottom of the resin.  I haven't really had many bubbles in my resin, I usually just mix slowly and gently and try not to lift my toothpick, which I use to mix the resin.  If you lift your tool when mixing, air bubbles will go into the mix.  Hope this helps you! :)

This helped but I still get air bubbles not as many though. Guess practice makes perfect!
