hello guys! I love arts and crafts and recently I invest in a new venture which is polymer clay. I love creating designs like key chains and cell phone charms but when its turn to bake my creations I noticed bubbles after baking. I beginning to worry that I will not be able to perfect my creation. Is there anyone who can help me with polymer clay? thanks a lot.

I think you need to condition the clay more before making your craft creations. I also make some charms, keychains, and others with the use of polymer clay. It's just a hobby. I'm not selling it. SO far I don't encounter the bubbling part because I always make sure that my clay is well conditioned before making my crafts and also before baking it. You can condition your clay by playing with it. Press it here and there just like what you usually do with an ordinary clay. Hope this helps! Happy mylotting!

There are a lot of books and web sites and even videos devoted to polymer clay. When you get bubbles in any kind of clay project, it usualy means you didn't knead it enough. You need to check the polymer clay project carefully before baking because that is the time to remove bubbles before the clay hardens.
