Fixing Moonies on OOAK Sculptures

Moonies are unfortunate but fixable (thank goodness).

Moonies: A moonie is a bubble of air that gets trapped in the polymer clay and when you bake your piece, it will show as a whitish spot in the form of a half moon or a bump in a lighter color. That’s why they’re called “moonies”.

I searched for videos of doing this but didn’t really find any. Just written instructions on how to do so. I’m a visual learner and always prefer a video tutorial to a text one. I will soon create video TuTs as my primary way of communicating “how-tos”, but for now I’m going to be as clear, coherent and detailed as I can. I have created a PDF TuT of this which I will post momentarily on the FDMj Creations website.
